15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme - Printer Friendly
Taco-seasoned ground beef simmered with tomato and rice is topped with salsa, cheese and lettuce for a tortilla chip-dipping meal.
Easy, easy, easy… What more can a person say? Oh, Yummy! I had made a few modifications, but nothing so major to detract from the recipe. First change I used the taco seasoning from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Taco-Seasoning-I/Detail.aspx (Ever since I first used that recipe I never buy the packets). Second change was I cooked the rice in my rice cooker separately, 1-cup rice and 2 cups water. Third change was I used a cup of habanera salsa that my manager made, and it was perfect! She uses fresh ingredients straight from her garden. Will definitely make this again!
This was very yummy. I used a progresso tomato soup, because that was what I had on hand. I also used some leftover brown rice from a different meal, which absorbed all the liquid. I added black beans to it, and just used cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and a little salt in place of the taco seasonings. It was a nice easy dinner. The kids liked it alot.
This is good, and my "meat, bread, and cheese only" husband likes it too. It's easy to make. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that there is nothing that makes it really stand out. I will be making it again regularly though I am sure. I added some re-fried beans to it and put it all except the salsa and lettuce into a casserole dish. Put the chips on a cookie sheet and warmed them both in the oven for 6 mins.
even ben loves it
Very yummy!! I did make some changes though. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef to make it a little healthier (next time I may use more than one pound). I also had to cook it for about 10 minutes in Step 2. After that, I poured the mixture into a casserole dish, covered it with some salsa, then with some sour cream, and finally I sprinkled some cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top. Then I popped in under the broiler for just a few minutes until the cheese was melted. We used the light restaurant-style tortilla chips and they were great. Both my husband and I loved it! We'll probably end up getting two or three meals out of it too. This is definitely going in my recipe box!
My boyfriend really liked it and ate quite a bit. I actually thought it was pretty good myself and I don't usually like this type of food.
These are definitely super nachos with a layering of ground beef, refried beans, Cheddar cheese, olives, and more. It will be a crowd pleaser on game day.
