I think of nachos as a good bar food, a happy hour snack when out with friends. Rarely do I think to make them at home. But now that I am in full use up my pantry mode I am looking for unique ways to use it all up. Enter Fajita Nachos. Born out of seeing a random packet of fajita seasoning and digging in the pantry to see what else I could find.
I figured with a pound of ground beef and good seasoning these would be pretty tasty. Next time I would add a can of black beans for even more flavor. Served over multi grain tortilla chips for a good crunch and true nacho style.
