Macho Nachos

Back in the day when seeing and being seen was a priority Saturday nights, I loved to go for drinks to a variety of favourite hangouts and then end the evening with some kind of snack - which in my day was either one of two things: chicken wings, or nachos.

 

While I'm more likely to be spotted watching the Real Housewives most Saturday nights now, the urge for pub food still hits every now and then and what could be better than a hot tray of oooey, goooey, cheesey nachos?




 To get things started, saute one chopped white onion in a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.

















Saute until just translucent and then add one pound extra lean ground beef and one diced jalapeno pepper.

















Continue to saute until ground beef is browned.

Add:
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 can tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup salsa
 
















Place a layer of tortilla chips onto a foil or parchment lined cookie sheet.

Top with ground beef mixture, sliced black olives, green chiles, and 2 cups cheddar cheese.

Bake in a 400 over for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts and the tortilla chips begin to brown.















Top with tomatoes and green onion and serve with cold beer.
