on a nacho bake...

Holy cow. This Nacho Bake was totally a spur of the moment thing and yet, I'm so happy that it happened! It was finger licking good! Sometimes dinner just has to be fun and this was one of those nights were we just wanted to sit in front of the television and veg out. However, this could be a great appetizer or would of been perfect for Cinco de Mayo! Of course you can super creative with nachos but here's how I made mine.

Tortilla chips
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup water
Taco Seasoning
1 can black beans 
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 green peppers
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded 
1/2 cup Ortega Taco Sauce 
Jalapeño slices for garnish 

1. Cook ground beef on a skillet until it browns. Add taco seasoning and water and cook for a few minutes. Add blacked beans, cook for 10 minutes and set aside. 
2. Saute green pepper in olive oil until tender and then add them to the ground beef and mix everything together. 
3. Take a oven safe dish and later tortilla chips on the bottom. Add ground beef mixture and then the cheese on the top. Pour taco sauce over it and set into a oven that's been preheat to 350. Bake for 15 minutes until cheese has melted and it bubbly. 
4. Top with jalapeño slices and serve with sour cream & guacamole.
