I can’t think of a better, cheesier game-day snack than my Bet You Can’t Have Just One Nacho recipe. With layers of tortilla chips, meat, black beans, melted cheese, jalapeno slices, salsa and sour cream – this dish is one your friends and family will be cheering for long after the game is over.
The recipe can be made in one big batch in a 4-qt. baker, but sometimes I like to make individual portions in my mini pie dishes. That way, everyone gets to top their nachos exactly how they like them. And the minis certainly help with portion control, too.
Bet You Can’t Have Just One Nacho can be thrown together quickly, and you can easily adapt it to suit your tastes. Diced chicken, ground turkey, or veggie crumbles can be substituted for the ground beef and used as the base. (I used diced chicken here.)
Don’t like things too spicy? Omit the jalapeno slices and go with a mild salsa.
Trying to reduce fat intake? Use baked tortilla chips, reduced fat cheese (and less of it), and substitute plain, fat-free Greek yogurt, which is just as rich and creamy, for the sour cream.
Finally, the range of toppings you can add to this dish is practically endless. Try any of the following served in my EZ Hold ramekins, mini pie dishes or dipping dishes, and let guests create their own fiesta:
– chopped cilantro
– grape tomatoes
– shredded lettuce
– sliced olives
– chopped green or red onions
– hot sauce
You’ll definitely want to serve these nachos at your next game-day gathering.
