Touchdown Nachos with Pico de Gallo
Hearty beef, bean and cheese nachos fit for a crowd!
Pico de gallo is generally known as a fresher version of salsa that does not include cooking the ingredients before serving. Pickier palates may want their own batch without jalapeños. Either way, these nachos will keep the crowd cheering!
In large sauté pan over medium heat, cook ground beef, onions and chili until fully cooked. Add refried beans and mix well. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 F.
Coat two large baking sheets with cooking spray. Spread one layer tortilla chips evenly over both sheets. Cover chips with 2 cups cheese. Top with ground beef mixture, jalapeños and remaining cheese.
Place in oven and bake 15 minutes. Top with avocado slices and serve with pico de gallo, sour cream and extra jalapeños.
