Nachos Supreme

Call me lame, but I seriously get such a sense of accomplishment when I make a new recipe and Nate likes it. Tonight was no exception. These nachos were super easy and super tasty. This recipe is a definite keeper! I found the idea at Tied and True Cooking with Heidi.

1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
2 cans refried beans
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/2-3/4 cup water (I used a half cup and it was perfect)
2-3 Tbsp. taco sauce (optional, just if you want a little extra kick)

tortilla chips
queso or shredded cheese
shredded lettuce
sour cream
sliced black olives
pico de gallo
really whatever nacho trimmings you like!

Combine all the filling ingredients and place in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for a few hours, stirring occasionally. Serve over tortilla chips and top with cheese and trimmings! Enjoy!

*My Note: Since the ground beef is already cooked when it goes in the crock pot there isn't a real cook time. You just want to give it a few hours for the flavors to combine. Mine cooked for about 5 hours and it was just right! This is a good recipe for a crowd, it makes the one pound of beef go really far, we have a lot of leftovers.

This is my plate, I opted for shredded cheese.

This is the hubs plate. He ate his with a spicy queso.
