Crisp, hot tortilla chips, spicy taco meat with beans and sweet corn along with gooey melted cheese on top, this all added up to a deliciously simple meal. This was a very fast dinner that I made the night we arrived at our cabin. I’d planned to make something else and I just wasn’t in the mood to really cook. I had ground beef waiting to be used and this was a great way to use some of it and in the process make everyone very happy.
I didn’t take a picture or plan to blog this meal at all, until my kids and husband all requested the same thing for lunch a couple days later. I snapped a picture this time and decided it was a great summertime meal to share. You could certainly fancy it up with optional toppings for a prettier presentation, but it worked great for us just the way I served it. Way less than 20 minutes, start to finish and even easier than traditional tacos.
I melted the cheese over our nachos in the microwave, because I didn’t want to turn on the oven or wait that long. However, both cooking methods work great.
