Taco Nachos

This recipe is really a combination of two other recipes I saw recently: Carrie’s walking tacos and Laura’s skillet tacos. I took the best parts of both recipes and combined them into what I believe is the best ever alterna-taco. How can you go wrong with flavorful, seasoned meat on top of a big pile of Doritos? Well, you can’t. Obviously these really aren’t all that good for you, but every once in a while they’re a fun and delicious indulgence. I can’t wait to have them again!

source: inspired by Real Mom Kitchen and Carrie’s Sweet Life

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1 can corn, drained
1 4-ounce can green chiles, undrained
1 8-ounce bottle taco sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Shredded lettuce, tomato, or sour cream, if desired

1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic, cook and stir for 30 seconds, then drain meat mixture.

2. Add the corn, green chiles, taco sauce, and 1 cup cheese to meat until well mixed.

3. Spread a layer of Doritos on dinner plates. Top each serving with meat mixture, then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with desired toppings.
