- 4 cups 4 cups 4 cups Tortilla Chips (Siete Grain-free)
- 1 cup 1 cup 1 cup Mexican Cheese Blend, (Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Queso Blanco - available at most grocery stores)
- .75 lb .75 lb .75 lb Ground Beef
- 1 Tbsp 1 Tbsp 1 Tbsp Primal Palate Taco Seasoning
- 1 cup 1 cup 1 cup Romaine Lettuce, shredded
- 1/4 cup 1/4 cup 1/4 cup Black Olives, sliced
- 1/4 cup 1/4 cup 1/4 cup Red Onion, sliced thin
- 1 cup 1 cup 1 cup Guacamole
- 1/2 cup 1/2 cup 1/2 cup Roasted Roma Salsa (click for recipe)
- 1/2 cup 1/2 cup 1/2 cup Cilantro
- 1 tsp 1 tsp 1 tsp Sea Salt, (Maldon Flake Salt is what I prefer)
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- On a baking sheet (over a layer of parchment, if you'd like), spread a layer of tortilla chips. Our favorite are the new chips from SIete which are grain-free, and made with cassava flour. If you tolerate them, you can also use corn chips, although not a very paleo option.
- Cover the chips with the shredded Mexican blend of cheese, and melt for 6-8 minutes in the oven.
- While the cheese is melting over the chips, brown the ground beef in a saute pan over medium heat. When cooked through, add the taco seasoning and stir to combine.
- Take the taco meat and spread over the nachos, add more cheese to the top, and return to the warm oven for 5 more minutes.
- Top the nachos with shredded lettuce, sliced red onion, sliced olives, salsa, guacamole, fresh cilantro, and some flaky sea salt. You can add whatever other toppings you'd like (like sliced peppers!)
This recipe serves 2 as a dinner portion, and 4-8 as a party side dish.
