Easy Beef Skillet Nachos — a dish you need for your next party, tailgate, or game day food. Sizzling just out of the oven, everyone will love the spicy beef and gooey cheese.




And the best part — it’s super easy.allowing You know it’s going to be a fun

We recommend a cast-iron skillet for these nachos. While other skillets work, the cast iron skillet holds the heat longer than aluminum or stainless, keeping your chips crisp, the gooey cheese warm and the beef hot. Just the way you want your nachos.

A simple layering of ingredients ensures that every bite, clear to the bottom, will be delicious!

Serve with fresh tomatoes, salsa, avocado, guacamole, sour cream — even lime wedges.

And… if you’re like me and love a little chocolate after your nachos — try our family size fudgy cakey brownies. They’re always a hit around here.

Whether you’re serving this as a game day appetizer, or even a main dish — have fun!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4-1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to preference)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 15-oz can red kidney beans (or black beans), rinsed and drained
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar/mozzarella mix)

Garnish Ideas

  • sliced green onions
  • sour cream
  • fresh chopped tomatoes
  • chopped avocado
  • guacamole
  • salsa
  • lime wedges

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400° with oven rack in the middle position.

Cook ground beef and half of the sliced green onions in a cast iron skillet, breaking up the meat until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne, salt, and pepper to taste and cook until fragrant, about another minute. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.

Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel. Spread half of tortilla chips evenly in the bottom of the skillet. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese, cooked beef, and kidney beans over the chips. Repeat layering with remaining chips, cheese, beans, and beef. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and just beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Garnish with remaining scallions, chopped tomatoes, and other ideas listed below. Serve immediately.
