How to Cook Ground Beef Nachos: International Nacho Day

chicken & black bean nachosOctober 21st is International Nacho Day, and no wonder…What’s not to love about Nachos?

Most every family, and from young to old, enjoy s a nice, hot platter of nachos. I know we all do, and we use this basic recipe below.

How to Cook Ground Beef Nachos:

Whether you want to call them Mexican or Tex-Mex, these nachos are wonderful anywhere you make them in the world. šŸ˜‰

  • Tip: If we want this to serve us as a meal, we add sauteed & browned ground meat prior to melted cheese. It’s great either way.

Type: Main Dish Recipe

Serve with: with rice, if desired
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: ~ 25 min
Serves: 10 servings


  • broiled nachos5 cups tortilla chips
  • 1 – 2 cups ground beef – browned; you may also use shredded chicken, pork, beef – you get the idea
  • 1 2/3 cups cheddar – grated
  • 1 2/3 cups Monterrey Jack – grated
  • green chilies – finely chopped, to taste
  • 1/2 green pepper – sliced & sauteed
  • 1/2 onion – sliced & sauteed


The toppings you choose will vary based upon what you like, and what you don’t, as well as what you have in the house at the time.

Below, I’ve given some popular options we love. You may heat these ingredients under the broiler with the nachos, or add them at the end…it’s up to you!


  1. Preheat your broiler.
  2. Spread tortilla chips on a heatproof platter or large cookie sheet.
  3. If you want to add ground beef, sprinkle 1 -2 cups on top.
  4. Evenly spread sauteed onions & green pepper.
  5. Sprinkle on top the cheddar & Monterrey Jack cheese, as well as a few chilies, based upon how spicy you like your nachos to be.
  6. Broil until the cheese is melted & bubbly – about 1 – 3 min.
  7. Add the toppings of your choice – some ideas are listed above.

If you add the refried and/or other beans along with the sauteed ground beef or chicken, you have a heartier, more nutritious dish, which can make a good meal, as well as a snack.

International Nacho Day is here, but nachos should be celebrated more than once a year!
