1 1/2 lb. Ground Sirloin (or turkey or tofu, if desired)
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
1 cup salsa (I use a thick salsa with medium heat)
Instructions for My Mexican Seasoned Ground Beef
Brown the ground meat in a skillet over medium heat. Drain away any drippings. Add the spices and the salsa. Cover and simmer over low heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Offer a plate or bowl of tortilla chips or strips and let the nacho building begin!
Tips for Building the Busy Night Build Your Own Loaded Nachos Bar
Choose an assortment of toppings.
Sliced Black olives
Make the toppings easy to use.
Add tongs, forks, serving spoons, etc. to each container of toppings. Keep the toppings easy to reach for the little ones.
My girls typically build (and eat) their nachos much easier when they build them into a soup bowl. Toppings stay contained in the bowl and rarely slip over its edges!
Consider using tortilla strips or scoops instead of large tortilla chips.My girls struggle with large chips in small hands! We are much more successful (and less messy) when we serve strips or scoop style chips. They also tend to slow down the meal!
