To Make Ground Beef Taco Meat
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and crumble it, breaking it up.
Add taco seasoning, tomato sauce and salt. Stir to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook until slightly thickened.
Sheet Pan Nachos
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread tortilla chips evenly across a large baking sheet. Add 1 cup of grated cheese evenly across the chips. Spoon taco meat evenly over the tortilla chips and add remaining cheese over the meat. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Remove from oven. Drizzle sour cream, add favorite toppings such as lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, olives, avocado and jalapenos.
Using a spatula, transfer portion size directly onto a plate or dig in directly from the sheet pan.
Making Taco Meat: if using canned diced tomatoes, break up the tomato chunks with a flat spatula as it cooks.Make-Ahead Tips: prep as much as can be made ahead of time: taco meat up to 4 days prior to assembling nachos; shred cheese; cut all veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, onions and avocado and keep in airtight container in the refrigeratorMaking Paleo/Whole30/Low Carb Nachos:
Paleo & Whole30: Use grain-free chips such as Siete or plantain chips from Trader Joe's. To avoid dairy, simply omit all cheese and sub coconut yogurt for sour cream. Use guacamole (instead of avocado) and salsa (instead of tomatoes) so the nachos are not too dry.
Low Carb & Keto: You can various recipes online using homemade tortilla chips. If using storebought low carb tortilla chips be careful to read the labels as they often they contain fillers and additives. All the toppings listed are naturally low carb.
