Taco Nachos

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

Original recipe makes 6 servings

1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
3/4 pound processed cheese, cubed
1 tablespoon milk
1 (12 ounce) package tortilla chips
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato

  1. Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and mix in taco seasoning mix and water. Continue cooking 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Place processed cheese and milk in a small, microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir until blended and smooth.
  3. Place tortilla chips on a large, microwave safe dish. Spread with refried beans. Top with beef and cheese and mixtures.
  4. Microwave approximately 2 minutes on high, until the cheese has melted into the beef. Top with tomato and green onions. Serve warm.
