Super Nachos

I'm not sure I can even call this a real recipe, but it's a super easy, super fast dinner idea.  I think everyone needs some of those to stick in their back pocket!  I like to pair this with mexican rice or a green salad.

Super Nachos
Tortilla Chips
1 lb ground beef
Taco seasoning (Use store bought or make your own)
2 cups grated cheddar or colby jack cheese
Diced tomatoes
Sliced olives
Avocado or guacamole
Sour Cream
Salsa...or any other toppings you can dream up.  My friend, Haylee, even makes them with grilled chicken.

Preheat oven to 375.  Add salt and pepper to ground beef and brown.  Drain fat and rinse if desired.  Season with taco seasoning according to package directions.  Arrange tortilla chips on a lined baking sheet.  Be careful not to let them overlap too much, or you won't get enough cheesy goodness on each chip!  Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on top.  Top with all desired topping and finish off with remaining grated cheese.  Keep a close eye on them for about 5 minutes in preheated oven or until the chesse is a melty as you want it.  We like to dip ours in sour cream, salsa, or cilantro-ranch dressing.

Note:  I mixed all the toppings in with some cooked macaroni for my little guy since he can't chew tortilla chips yet.  He loved it!
