These nachos beat any drive through and the big plus was they weren't soggy from a drive home. For the meat and cheese part I made sort of a thick queso that was mixed 1 TexMex taco meat and .50 Velveeta cheese. It played a big part in my h*ll yeah moment. It’s been extra busy so I was looking to make dinner quick and the least amount of cleanup. The clean up around here is a little intensive I’m guessing than most households. My taco meat was pre made so the round trip to the quickness of this dinner was two bowls, cutting board, knife, plate and a spoon or two….

The Build

Taco Meat Production

  1. If you are using your own premade Taco meat skip to #6
  2. In your med heat pan cook ground beef to brown. I take it a little further to get crispy pieces too.
  3. Drain off fat in a metal strainer over sink. You can push the meat down with a small plate or object to squeeze out some extra fat.
  4. Once drained put meat back in pan on medium high, add 1 cup water, and ¼ cup Taco Dust. You can turn up the boldness of the seasoning buy adding more Taco Dust. ½ cup is our max for 1 pound of meat.
  5. Simmer for a few minutes and take off heat.
  6. Now, depending on your number of eaters 1 pound of ground beef will get about 2 cups. This recipe was made with 1 cup beef. I’m doing as if you are using 2 cups beef because the leftover is great over a morning omelet and you likely are cooking with someone.
  7. Velveeta is measured in ounces and we need 1 cup worth. That would mean cut off 8 ounces worth and dice the Velveeta up. I get the dice as small as possible because when microwaving it melts down quicker.
  8. Throw Velveeta and milk in a bowl and microwave in 45 second intervals stirring and keeping an eye on until a liquid smooth texture. Careful because towards the end of heating the Velveeta it will bubble over. Stop the microwave if you see this starting.
  9. Once you got the these cheese creamy drop the meat in the bowl and mix up.

Diced Veggies

  1. Throw the diced bell pepper, tomato, jalapeno, and dash of salt in a bowl.
  2. Mix them up. The salt will bring out the veggies flavors.

Let Eat!

  1. From bottom up. Place chips on plate or platter. Try to spread out as much as you can so most the chips get meat/cheese love.
  2. Pour as little or as much as you want of the meat cheese mixture over chips. I don’t hit it too hard I’d say that’s ¼ cup of the mixture.
  3. Sprinkle you diced veggie mixture over top.
  4. Dab 4 or 5 tablespoons of sour cream in your perfect positioning. Make a smiley face if ya want.
  5. Dab 4 or 5 tablespoons of Scorched around the top.
  6. Get after it. The longer you wait the hungri-er you get.


Sliced black olives would have been great on this imo. Be sure to add what makes you happy.


➕ Nutrition - About

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits. If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
