Serving Size: Serves 4-6 Ingredients
  • 3/4 Pound Ground Beef (80/20)
  • 3/4 Cup Onion (diced small)
  • 1/4 Cup Jalapeno (seeds removed, minced)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 Cup Red Wine
  • 2 T Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 2 Cups Tomato (diced small)
  • 3/4 Cup Red Onion
  • 1 15 oz Can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 1/2 Cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded, divided)
  • 1 Bag Tortilla Chips (scoops)
  • 3 T PC Willy's Seasoning
  • Sour Cream (for serving)
  • 1 Avocado (sliced thin, for serving)
  • Boston/Bibb Lettuce (shredded, for serving)
Directions
  • In a medium sized pot, add your beef and cook over a medium heat, breaking up with a spoon until cooked through (about 5 minutes). Remove the beef with a slotted spoon and put in a bowl for later use. With the meat's grease still in the pot, over a medium heat, add your onion and jalapeno. Cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently until soft.
  • At this point, add in your garlic and red wine and cook about 3 minutes until the wine has evaporated (again, stirring frequently). Add in your tomato paste and cook about 3 more minutes (stirring). Now add your beef back in, along with the oregano, chili powder and 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low - simmering for about 45 minutes (stir frequently and add more water if it gets too dry).
  • After about 45 minutes, taste and season the beef with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  • (While the beef is cooking): In a large bowl, combine your tomato, red onion, black beans, 1.5 cups of your cheddar and your PC Willy's seasoning.
  • Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. On the baking sheet, place a layer of tortilla chips, and top with the both beef mixture and the bean mixture. Add another layer of tortilla chips and top with the rest of the beef and bean mixtures (use as many tortilla chips as it takes to go through all of your toppings). Top the entire nacho mound with the remaining cheddar cheese.
  • Bake the nachos in a 375 degree oven for 13-15 minutes (once the cheese has melted). Serve hot with sour cream, avocado, and shredded lettuce!
