Oh-So-Easy Nachos Recipe

October 15, 2012

I hesitate to call this a recipe, but these were simply too good not to share!


  • Tortilla Chips (I used Nacho Cheese Doritos for my husband and regular tortilla chips for me.)
  • 1 Pound Ground Turkey
  • 7 Teaspoons of Taco Seasoning
  • Shredded Cheddar
  • Black Beans
  • Pico de Gallo (I used store bought Southwestern blend that had corn and beans in it.)
  • Melting Queso Cheese and Milk, if instructions call for it
  • Half of an Avocado


  1. Brown your ground turkey and drain any excess fat from the pan.
  2. Add seven teaspoons of the taco seasoning (or use one store-bought pack), and a half a cup of water to the cooked turkey. Cook until there is no water left in the pan.
  3. Arrange your tortilla chips on a baking sheet.
  4. Add all of the ingredients to the top of your chips except for the queso cheese, milk (if using) and avocado.
  5. Cook in a 350° oven until all ingredients are heated through and cheddar cheese is melted.
  6. While your nachos are in the oven, melt the queso cheese according the the package instructions. Mine called for breaking the cheese into small chunks and melting in a bit of milk on medium-low heat.
  7. Remove nachos from oven and pour queso cheese over top.
  8. Add avocado slices.
  9. Enjoy!

Travis prefers his nachos with the Doritos and only meat and cheese.

I like my nachos with everything. Yum!

As I already said, I hesitate to even call this a recipe, because you can add any ingredients your little heart desires. Mine desired all of the above with a tall drink of ice water with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. It was delicious! Plus, we had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day, which is always a bonus in my book.

What are your favorite nacho toppings? I’m always on the lookout for new toppings.
