The Ultimate Nachos

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 8


  • 2 pounds Ground chuck
  • 1 packet Taco seasoning mix
  • 1 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 box (32 ounces) Velveeta - cut into small cubes
  • 1 can (10 ounces) Diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1/2 cup Milk or heavy cream
  • Lots of tortilla chips
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Seeded and diced tomatoes
  • Sliced black olives
  • Scallions
  • Pickled jalapenos
  • Sour cream


  • Brown beef.
  • Add water and taco seasoning and simmer 10 to 15 minutes until liquid reduces.
  • Using a microwave or stove, carefully melt cheese together with tomatoes, milk or cream stirring often so that cheese sauce doesn’t burn.
  • If mixture gets too thick, add a little more milk or cream.
  • Arrange chips on platter.
  • Spoon warm cheese sauce on top.
  • Next spoon taco meat on top and then pile on the rest of your favorite nacho toppings.
  • Serve right away.
  • Any extra cheese sauce keeps in the fridge for up to a week, just reheat in microwave and serve as a dip with tortilla chips.


Sometimes I double the recipe and set up a nacho bar for game day. Keep beef mixture and cheese sauce warm in separate slow cookers. Game on!
