Bacon Cheeseburger Nacho Bake

Yep, you read that right. This casserole combines the flavors of juicy bacon cheeseburgers and the crunch of nachos.

I love a good bacon cheeseburger with lots of pickles and ketchup. The cure to a bad day, bad hangover, bad anything…what’s not to love about that kind of comfort food? So why not take all of those luscious flavors and put them in a casserole that is super easy to make, even on a busy weeknight? Your family will thank you, I promise. Here’s how to do it! 

First, brown some hamburger with chopped onions in a skillet.

Then take about eight ounces of prepared cheese product and cut it into small cubes. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_02
Add the cheese to your ground beef along with ½ cup of cooked bacon bits. As a shortcut, I bought the real bacon bits at the grocery, but you can cook up your own too. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_03
Let that mixture cook until the cheese is melted. Get ready for awesome smells. Next put some tortilla chips in a storage bag, and give them a good whack with a rolling pin. You want to make sure they are broken up, not crushed into dust. Don’t let all your aggressions out on the poor chips…just a few aggressions. When it’s all said and done, you want to have about three cups of crushed-up chips. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_04
Put half the chips at the bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_06
Then spread half the cheesy meat mixture on top of the chips. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_07
Then add another layer of chips and meat. Yep, this is a double-decker sort of situation. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_08
Finally, sprinkle a cup or so of shredded cheddar cheese on the top. More cheese you say? Yes, yes, yes. Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_09
Next pop it in a 350-degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, just until the cheese is nice and bubbly. Top it with whatever you like! I enjoyed my serving just like I like my cheeseburgers, with lots of pickles, lettuce and a drizzle of ketchup and mustard. Yum! Bacon-Cheeseburger-Nacho-Bake_10
