  • Skillet


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 jalapeno pepper sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced, white and green parts
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce chopped
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • salsa or taco sauce for drizzling, dipping


  • In a cast-iron skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat (using grill, campfire or stovetop) until no longer pink. Create a hole in the center of the meat and add jalapeños and green onions. Cook, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl and line the bottom of the hot skillet with chips.
  • Pour the ground beef-green onion mixture evenly over the chips. Top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and salsa/taco sauce. Dig in immediately!


  • These can be versatile and can be catered to your liking. Swap out the veggies for different ones or use a flavored variety of potato chip.
  • Use sausage or chicken for the meat instead of ground beef or add avocados and sour cream to the top. Get creative!
  • Once the nachos are layered, try putting a lid over the top to trap the steam which will help the cheese to melt more quickly. Don’t have a lid? Use aluminum foil!
