Jalapeno Beef Nachos

Yes, it is finally here …what you ask?  Fiesta Friday!!  Hosted by Angie, The Novice Gardener.  It has been a busy week; at work, blogging from AtoZ Challenge …so much going on.  Time to slow down.  So tonight something easy, quick and always a hit with everyone …Nachos!  You can do so much with Nachos.  Mix it up with different ingredients.  I like to mash an avocado or two with the tomatoes, onions and peppers and make guacamole to spread on top.  For Chicken Nachos, add 1 cup of shredded cooked chicken.  For the kiddos, omit the jalapeno and guacamole. Kids love these cheesy nachos. Sprinkle the cheese over chips, heat to melt cheese and let the kids pile on their favorite toppings and enjoy!



Happy Eating!

    1. Thank you! You can’t go wrong with Nachos at my house and what would so many foods be without that extra kick. I love jalapenos on so many things …I am not brave enough to eat them straight out of the can though. 🙂 Banana peppers I can do. Thanks for visiting!
