Loaded Oven Nachos

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning - I used Penzeys Bold Taco
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag corn tortilla chips
  • 6-8 mini sweet peppers, sliced
  • ⅓ cup black olives, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cheese cheddar cheese
  • Diced avocado
  • Salsa & sour cream

Position rack in top third of oven. Preheat the oven to 400º.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the beef and minced garlic. Cook until the meat is no longer pink. Add the taco seasoning, mixing to combine. Set aside.

Spread about 2-3 cups of chips on the bottom of a heavy baking sheet, overlapping them. Top the chips with half of the beef mixture, half the sweet peppers, half the olives, and half the cheese. Repeat layers starting with chips and ending with cheese. Bake for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with diced avocado and serve immediately with salsa and sour cream.
