My kids wanted nachos. I didn’t have a recipe, so I created this one. It was a hit with us!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ pound processed cheese, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) package tortilla chips
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • ½ cup chopped fresh tomato
  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions

  4. 4 Microwave approximately 2 minutes on high, until the cheese has melted into the beef. Top with tomato and green onions. Serve warm.
