The last recipe I followed for Nachos involved so much in putting it together that it wasn't worth the time and effort. Maybe there is a simple recipe that can be put together in 5 or 10 minutes. Of course meat would be necessary for my purposes and cheese also.

All I do is brown some ground beef and mix in an envelope of taco seasoning. Layer tortilla chips, beef mixture, salsa, and cheese and melt in the oven or microwave. Top with jalapenos, guacamole, sour cream or whatever you like.

Aren't all nachos recipes fairly simple?

That's how I do it.

Spread the torilla chips onto a cookie sheet. Top with spoonfuls of chili. Place some black olives on the chili. Top with a generous amount of grated cheddar cheese

Bake 350 until the cheese is melted

Serve with dollops of sour cream and guacamole. Drip on some hot sauce if you like it. Put jalapenos on top.

Additional note: I place a silicon baking sheet onto my cookie sheet before I put together the nachos. That way I don't get melted cheese stuck to the pan.

If you really want simple and it is not for a meal, buy a can of nacho cheese sauce. Heat it up and pour it over tortilla chips. Pretty darn good, considering it is junk food. It's really fast and surprisingly edible considering no effort went into it, and probably there is no real food in the cheese sauce.

Not all. What I usually do for nachos involves cooking all day: a beef chuck roast, dry pinto beans, lots of dried chilies, onions, and spices simmered all day in the crock pot.

Once that is done, the beef is shredded and the nachos are built from there.

Nachos should be the appetizer course prior to serving a dish that involves cooking all day.

On taco nights, I reserve some of the taco meat. (well okay HIDE a Tupperware of it from the fam). On parchment paper lined cookie sheet, I spread out cantina style chips. Sprinkle the cold taco meat (easier to spread out when cold) Sprinkle cojita and enchilada cheese (you can use whatever you like of course) and broil till bubbly melted. While it's broiling, I chop up scallions, fire roasted jalopeno and a tomato. Remove nachos from oven, sprinkle on more cheeses (it will melt as it hits the hot nachos). Scatter scallions, pepper and tomatoes all over. Serve with guac, salsa and sour cream.

I keep it simple. When hubby makes it, he laboriously put a scoop of refried beans on several nachos.

*Using tongs, I roast the jalopeno over my stove flame till blackened and blistered on all sides. Then I put it in a bowl and cover with a plate to steam for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse off black bits and chop.

And I'm going to need your address, because, um, reasons. And I'm going to need to know when you are making these again, because, um, reasons. And I'm hungry.
