Fancy Pants App: Loaded Nachos

Print Friendly and PDF
Now that football is BACK and we have a gorgeous new living room in which to watch it, I am loading up on the football snacks.  After making homemade salsa, I knew that the best way to enhance that was with a delicious plate of nachos.

The nachos were made better, in my humble opinion, by my brand new toaster/convection oven.  It's tremendous but it really works.  You'll see it featured next week but for now just know the broiler function WOW!  The cheese on these nachos was probably the best I've ever made at home.

The secret to loaded nachos is all about the layering.  Plate just one layer of chips, then beans, meat, toppings, then another layer, if desired.  Don't try to crowd the chips because then you get those sad chips that have nothing accompanying them.  The other secret?  Make more than you think - for some reason, these fly off the table!  I won't tell you that John and I fought over the last bit of it.  No, we won't mention that.

2 cups tortilla chip rounds
1 can black beans, drained
1/4 pound ground turkey, cooked
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablepoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup pepperjack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 avocado, sliced
2 jalapenos, sliced
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup salsa (homemade if desired)

Place tortilla chips ont he bottom of a large sheet pan.  Mix in a small bowl black beans, ground turkey, cumin, paprika, and chili powder.  Layer this on top of the tortilla chips.  On top of this, evenly cover with shredded cheese.

Place the pan under the broiler and broil for 4-7 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

Let sit for 1-2 minutes.  Then add avocado slices, jalapeno slices, dollops of sour cream, and salsa.  Serve immediately with extra chips if desired.
