I am in full blown cooking mode this week with lots of special Thanksgiving orders and prep work. I love the business but when I'm busy cooking for clients, my own family dinners tend to suffer. When work gets crazy, I have to rely on easy to fix dinners that my family will still love.
My daughter LOVES nachos so when I found this recipe for Sheet Pan Beef Nachos, I just had to try them. This recipe was perfect for my busy week: easy to prepare, delicious, and moderately healthy.
This recipe came together, start to finish, in less than 30 minutes. AND more importantly, they were gobbled up even faster. My family loved them.
Sheet Pan Beef Nachos
1 can black beans
1/2 cup water
8 ounces lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 green onions
8 corn tortillas (6 inch)
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
Cut tortillas into wedges.
Arrange tortilla wedges on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Broil until browned. Flip. Brown other side.
Sprinkle beef mixture over browned tortillas wedges.
Drizzle cheese mixture over beef on pan. Top with remaining green onions and cilantro.
I would love to try these nachos again with ground turkey instead of the beef. I really liked the cheese sauce and the black bean mixture. I wish that I had a few tomatoes to sprinkle over the top - just to add a little color but - there's always next time.
If you've got a busy week like me - give these nachos a try. I'm pretty sure your family will love them too.
