I didn’t grow up with a mom who went to all the trouble of making game day food for those FSU games. Yeah, growing up here in the south we didn’t watch the Alabama/Auburn games. Seeing that we were from Florida and being in a family that was divided between the Seminoles and Gators, I grew up a Noles fan for the longest time. Now, I’m not a fan of any of it. So we just didn’t do the whole chips and dip, wings, pizza, or oodles of soda and sweet treats thing, could have been because we didn’t have the extra funds to do stuff like that and it really wasn’t that big of a deal. Money went towards putting food on the table for a family of 5, special foodie days were for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. This is why I haven’t really promoted the whole tailgatin’, game day grubbin’, football recipe sharing route. It’s foreign to me, I do see great recipes on other sites and think wow that looks great to take to the next church social or Ladies get together. My mind doesn’t go to the next football game gathering.
Ok, before I sound like a broken record because I’m sure y’all have gotten the idea now….supreme nachos are going to be my contribution to the web 🙂 They’re easy, makes a lot and boy it is a crowd pleaser! I had to make a second pan last night because the fam just devoured the first pan as if they had never had nachos before! lol
My nephew thought I was making a nacho casserole, quite frankly even I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out but to his surprise(and well mine too) this turned out even better! When he saw the pan sitting on the stove top his first reaction was “whoa!” Yeah, I like that reaction 🙂
(For 1 pan of nachos)
1 bag of favorite tortilla chips
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 package favorite taco seasoning
1 can black beans, with liquid
1 can corn, drained
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp oregano
1 can refried beans
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 large tomato, chopped
2–3 scallions, chopped or 1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cup 4 cheese mexican cheese blend
lettuce for garnish
sour cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with release foil.
Spread out your favorite tortilla chips on the pan. If it’s not all a single layer that’s ok.
Brown the beef with onion and garlic. Drain the fat if you want, add in taco seasoning, black beans, corn, oregano, salt and pepper(if needed). Let simmer to bring together the flavors. While the meat mixture is cooking, chop up scallions, tomato, and lettuce. Set all aside in separate bowls.
In a medium size microwave safe bowl soften cream cheese. Cream with a hand mixer and add in refried beans mixing until cream cheese and beans are complete combined. Set aside.
Now it’s time to built the nachos! Dollop the cream cheese mixture all over the chips. Spread gently if you can, if not don’t worry about it. Spoon the meat mixture on, sprinkle around the tomatoes and scallions. Top with cheese and bake for 15 minutes.
Serve with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa!
These were insanely good! Everyone said it reminded them of the taco dip that we all love, that’s because of the cream cheese refried beans mixture. This recipe is definitely tried, true, and oh so tasty! Make it today for your game day buddies or serve it up for your family during the week. Leftovers? Well, let me know if you have any because I will guarantee you there won’t be any 😉
