Macho Nachos

There were lots of “mmmm’s” coming from the other room…I asked what was so good.  They said these were the best nachos ever. (recipe adapted from Pioneer Woman)

1 T. olive oil

1/2 yellow onion, diced finely

1 lb ground beef

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 c. hot water

In skillet over med-high heat, add olive oil and onion.  Cook until tender and starting to turn brown.  Add ground beef.  Drain fat.  Add in all the spices and stir.  Add beans and hot water, stir again.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve with: chips of course, salsa, sour cream, liquid cheese, shredded cheddar and jack cheese, avocado pieces, jalepeno slices, or whatever your heart desires.  There is no wrong way to build a plate of nachos my friend!
