Late Night Nachos with Ground Beef & Cheese
I’m usually pretty good about not eating too late at night, especially heavy foods. Otherwise I have to get out some sort of vinegar in my pantry and chuck it quickly before the heartburn sets in…
I posted this picture on Instagram and a lot of people were asking me for the recipe so I thought I’d explain how I made it, which is super duper easy (see below).
First, get some of your favorite tortilla chips- make sure they’re non-GMO. I like the Trader Joe’s brand tortilla chips or Milagro brand.
Next, add some cooked and spiced ground beef. I use a homemade chorizo blend that is now my favorite (you’ll get the recipe in my upcoming cookbook, insha’Allah).
Add some cubes or thin slices of Cabot Cheese halal-certified varieties on top of the beef. I use their Sharp Cheddar, which is wonderful.
Microwave for 1-2 minutes on medium-high or put in a toaster oven for 5-7 minutes, using an oven safe pan.
When it’s still hot, drizzle some avocado salsa and hot sauce on top. I love the Valentina brand and I think all of the brands I’m using really do make the difference, but you can definitely choose your own. I was actually lamenting that if I had sour cream at home I would dilute it slightly and drizzle on top, but my the more I thought about it, I decided it would only cover up all the nicely spiced meat and other ingredients. The experimentalist in me will certainly want to try that next time..
How do you make your very own late night nachos?
These look awesome! And your homemade chorizo blend? Sounds epic. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Rachael. I’ll be sharing the recipe in my upcoming cookbook 🙂
