PREP: 25 min. • BAKE: 10 min. MAKES: 12 servings
I modified a cheesy nacho recipe I found, and my family loves it. Loaded up with seasoned beef, beans, tomatoes and creamy queso, it’s become a regular at our dinner table. —Denise Wheeler, Newaygo, MI
1 lb. ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1 pkg. (13 oz.) tortilla chips
1 cup refried beans
1 jar (151/2 oz.) salsa con queso dip
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh chives, optional
1/2 cup sour cream
1. Preheat oven to 350¡. In a large skillet, cook and crumble beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. In an ungreased 13x9-in. baking pan, layer a third of each of the following: chips, beans, beef mixture and queso dip. Repeat layers twice.
3. Bake, uncovered, until heated through, 10-15 minutes. Top with chives; serve immediately with sour cream on the side.
