Ultimate Spicy Beef Nachos
Most nachos end up soggy, bland, and greasy when they could be crisp, flavorful, and fresh. Using the right ingredients is important, but the real secret to perfect nachos lies in the assembly.
Why This Recipe Works
Too often, nacho recipes produce soggy chips loaded down with bland, greasy beef; dry beans; and cold strings of cheese. To avoid this, we created an Ultimate Spicy Beef Nachos recipe that turns out crisp, flavorful, and fresh. Boldly seasoning our beef with a mixture of spices and other flavorings caused the flavor to pop. While many nacho recipes call for cheddar cheese, we found it didn’t melt nearly as well as pepper Jack, which melted well and added a kick, too.
