Tex-Mex Nachos

  • 3/4 pound ground round
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup taco sauce (I used water + taco seasoning)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained (I used pinto beans)
  • 1 can no-salt-added whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 2 ounces fat-free baked tortilla chips (about 2 cups or about 18 chips)
  • 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

Cook meat and green onions in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat mixture to pan. Stir in taco sauce, garlic powder, pepper, beans, and corn, and cook until thoroughly heated. Spoon 1 cup meat mixture over 1/2 cup chips, and top with 3/4 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup tomato, 1/4 cup cheese, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Oh, girl, if you bring a large dish of these nachos over to my house to share, I will do 3 errands for you from your Paris list.

Mmmmmmmm, nachos.....(said in Homer Simpson voice).
