Do you ever just crave nachos? If that’s not you, then I hope you’re prepared, because after this you definitely will. ALL THE TIME! These nachos are so tasty and flavorful! They taste like they were just made and brought to your table at the restaurant, but instead YOU made them in YOUR kitchen!! Check out the recipe here below! 




  • aluminum foil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (18 ounce) package restaurant-style tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, or more for taste
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 (10 ounce) can pitted black olives, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 4 green onions, diced

  1. Preheat the oven broiler. Set the rack oven about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Cook and stir ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until meat is crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 to 10 minutes. 
  3. Drain excess grease. Stir in water and taco seasoning mix, simmer until beef mixture has thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes. 
  4. Spread tortilla chips on the prepared baking sheet. Top with cheddar cheese. Dot with refried beans and ground beef mixture. 
  5. Broil in a preheated oven until the cheese is melted, about 3 to 5 minutes.
