Recipe of the Week: Nachos

Recipe of the Week

From the taste kitchen of Dr. Sarah Laginess and Family





  • Meat for tacos (ground beef, ground turkey, ground pork, ground chicken)
  • Taco seasoning
  • Tortilla chips
  • Black beans
  • Shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • Salsa
  • Avocado/guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Diced tomatoes



·         Preheat oven to 425

·         Brown your meat, once browned add your taco seasoning

·         Place a layer of tortilla chips on a baking tray (I use parchment paper)

·         Layer on half of your taco meat

·         Top with half a can of black beans

·         Repeat layers

·         Top with shredded cheese

·         Bake for 10-15 minutes to brown up the cheese a little bit

·         Serve with your favorite toppings (see suggestions above)




  • Nachos has replaced our taco night at home – easier cleanup!
  • I make a tray with tortilla chips (I love the blue corn ones)
  • I make a second tray with the sweet potato tortilla chips (recipe from last week)
  • I make my own seasoning (Traci’s Adobo Seasoning – recipe was given last year)
  • This would also be delicious with pulled pork in place of the ground meat
