  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning
  • 1 (10 - 12 ounce) bag Tortilla Chips
  • 1 pound shredded cheese (such as cheddar, Monterrey jack, Mexican blend, etc.), divided
  • Toppings (optional): Lettuce, Tomato, Green Onion, Cilantro, Guacamole, Salsa, Sour Cream, and/or Olives


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook ground beef with onion and bell pepper until beef is cooked through and vegetables are slightly soft. Drain off any excess fat. Stir in taco seasoning. 
  • Place the tortilla chips in an even layer over the baking sheet. Sprinkle about half to three-fourths of the shredded cheese on top of the chips.
  • Sprinkle ground beef, onions, and peppers over chips. Top with remaining cheese.
  • Bake nachos at 350 degrees F for about 5-10 minute or until cheese has melted.
  • Serve nachos with your favorite toppings as suggested.


SNAPPY TIPS: Measurements for this recipe are approximate. You may need to adjust to your personal preference. I suggest grating your own cheese rather than using the pre-shredded cheese for better results.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Any kind of ground meat can be substituted for beef such as chicken or pork. You can serve these nachos with your favorite toppings including some of the suggestions given.
