More About This Recipe
  • This recipe couldn’t be easier to make. Even other nacho recipes can’t compete with the 10-minute prep time! And these aren’t your average throw-it-in-the-microwave nachos, either. Ground beef and taco seasoning give it an extra boost to keep you full, and the veggies add to the chips’ tasty crunch. Putting it in the oven instead of the microwave will make it even more delicious. But if you do prefer microwaved nachos — no problems with that! — explore all of Betty’s nacho recipes to find your perfect game-day app or weeknight snack.
