Quick and Easy Nachos

Quick and Easy Nachos

So, while I have crafting on my brain lately, I was gently reminded that the other people in the house still needed to eat !  Oh, yeah ... how could I forget !!

This quick and easy Nacho recipe is my absolute favorite go-to meal when I need dinner on the table in a flash.  All everyday ingredients, nothing strange or exotic, but it sure tastes great.

Quick and Easy Nachos

From start to serving, this dish only takes 20 - 25 minutes and it is always a hit. My family would request this easy Nachos dish frequently, and now and then I run out of proper Nachos, but I always have Doritos in the pantry.

I actually prefer using Doritos to Nachos, even though it is not really Nachos any longer, or does it still count ? Anyway, up to you, whether you use Nachos or Doritos {the cheese flavored}, your family will happily finish their dinner.

Quick and Easy Nachos

6 servings


200g Nachos or Dorito's
500g Lean Ground Beef
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
1 can (410g) Mexican style Tomatoes
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Gouda Cheese, grated
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
1/2 - 1 cup Guacamole  {store bought or your own}
1 Tomato, chopped
1/2 Onion, chopped


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - spray a cast iron ovenproof pan with cooking oil.
2.) Arrange the Nachos/Doritos in the bottom of the pan - set aside.
3.) Cook the Ground Beef until done - season with Salt and Pepper - add the can of Tomatoes - let cook for 2 minutes - spoon the meat mixture on top of the Nachos/Doritos.
4.) Place spoonfuls of the Sour Cream on top of the meat - sprinkle both Cheeses over.
5.) Place the ovenproof pan in the oven for about 10 minutes - until the Cheese has melted and is bubbly.
6.) Remove from the oven - top with the Guacamole - sprinkle the Tomato and Onion over.

Serve and enjoy !
