Beef Nachos Supreme

 Okay, it's been a busy week.  You've had work, errands, housework, the kids had a thousand places to be.  You barely had time to make dinner.  However, here you are, Super Bowl Sunday and YOU HAVE NO SNACKS!!!  What are you going to do!?!  You HAVE to have snacks for the big game!  Don't worry, I bet you can find everything you need to whip up a FANTASTIC Nachos Supreme in no time!  Just head on over to your pantry and fridge and I'll show you what I'm talking about!

Let's get started!

Nachos Supreme:
*Prep Time: 10 min.  *Cook Time:  5 min.  *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 6-8


The ingredients needed for the nachos.

  • 1 bag of Tortilla Chips
  • 1 lb. of Ground Beef
  • 1 15 oz. can of Refried Beans
  • 115 oz. can of Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 10 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies 
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 c. Shredded Cheddar
  • Sliced Black Olives
  • Sliced Green Onions
  • Sour Cream
  • Cilantro
To begin you will need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  

Frying pan over med/high heat.

Next place a skillet over a medium/high heat.

Oil being added to the pan.

Add 2-3 tbsp. of oil.

Ground beef in the pan being seasoned with salt.

Add the ground beef to the pan and season with salt and...

Ground beef in the pan being seasoned with pepper.


Ground beef in the pan being seasoned with oregano.

Now you can start to really amp up the flavor!
Add the oregano,

Chili powder being added to the ground beef in the pan.

Chili powder,

Onion powder being added to the ground beef in the pan.

Onion powder,

Cumin being added to the ground beef in the pan.


Smoked paprika being added to the ground beef in the pan.

And the smoked paprika.

The ground beef browning in the pan.

Break up the ground beef with a rubber spatula and stir so that everything is well coated in the spices.
Cook until the ground beef has browned and and is no longer pink, about 10 min.

The juice from the Ro*tel tomatoes being added to the browned ground beef for the Nachos Supreme.

Okay, so you know when you use a taco seasoning packet you add water to create a sauce.  Well we are going to apply that same principle here.  However, water really doesn't enhance the flavor any so I thought why not use the liquid from the can of diced tomatoes and chilies.  You will get the liquid you need to create a lovely sauce and you will get the added flavor of the tomato and green chili.

So pour the liquid from the can of diced tomatoes and green chilies into the meat and spices and let it reduce by half.

Refried beans being heated up in a sauce pan for the Nachos Supreme.

Since we are using refried beans from a can you are going to need to wake them up a little bit.
Pour (or plop lol) them into a small sauce pan.  Add a splash of water to the pan, stir it around, and heat over medium/high heat until smooth and workable.

A baking sheet lined with foil.

Now it is time to bring is all together!
You are going to need a baking sheet and cover it with foil.

Tortilla chips on the foil lined baking sheet.

Place the tortilla chips, in a single layer, on the baking sheet.

On a side note, you don't have to use this type of chip.  You can use nacho chips, fritos, whatever you desire!  That is part of the fun of pantry cooking.  It is whatever you have on hand.

Now you can dollop the warm refried beans around the baking sheet, on the chips.
