Everyone loves a good cheat meal. The best part is eating your food and not thinking how many calories or macros are in it. Just enjoying the peace of your food and life. Not every day, every meal can be scheduled. And it's okay to let your hair down sometimes. I have a serious weakness for Mexican food. Tacos, empanadas, nachos, burritos, you name it I'm in. So naturally this cheat meal revolves around one of my favorite dishes, nachos.
1 bag of tortilla chips (flat not scoops)
1lb of ground beef
1 can of refried beans
1 can of black olives
1 bunch of fresh cilantro
1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1 bag of shredded mexican cheese
1 packet of taco seasoning
Begin by spreading the chips down on your pan first, and topping it with cheese. Set your pan aside, as you make the ground beef with 1 onion and 1 pepper diced. Add in taco seasoning. In a small pot cook the refried beans, then spread it on top of the cheese. Once the meat is complete, spread it evenly on top of the cheese and refried beans. Then add more cheese to the top, as well as black beans, corn, fresh tomato, black olives and cilantro. Set your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12-16 minutes. (Keep checking every 5 minutes or so to bake the chips to your liking). Once it is done, ready to serve!
These nachos go best with a side of margaritas! :)
