NACHOS for the GAME!

What a beautiful Sunday we are having today.  I am loving the snow outside, everything looks so pretty covered in a blanket of white.  I am getting ready for the big game this afternoon.  Giants vs. 49'ers... And you would be so surprised, and don't send me any hate mail, but my Hubby doesn't want the Giants to win!  Yes, I know we live in New Jersey, and we were born and raised in New York City, but my Hubby does not like the Giants!  He's a JETS fan.....I know, I know, what can I say, but he's my Hubby and I love him, so I want whoever he wants to go 49'ers!

Nachos, we love Nachos in this house.  I make them often, especially on Sunday's during football season, because my Hubby loves football, and loves my Nachos! They are perfect for the big game, so comforting, so delicious, and best of all.....EASY!

1 big bag of Tortilla chips (whatever kind you want)
1 lb ground beef
1 can refried beans
1 can black or red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 packet taco seasoning
2 tsp. cumin
1/2 cup water
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
1 jar salsa, whatever you kind you like
Sour Cream for topping
Scallions for topping
Sliced Black Olives for topping
Sliced Jalapeno Peppers for topping

In a skillet, brown the ground beef until no longer pink.  Add the refried beans, black or kidney beans, seasoning pack, cumin, and water, bring to a light boil, and then simmer for 5 minutes covered. 

Line a large cookie sheet with foil, spray it with cooking spray, or a casserole dish.  Arrange the Tortilla chips on the cookie sheet or casserole dish and then generously top the chips with the beef and bean mixture.  Top with the cheddar cheese.  Bake in a 375 oven for 20 minutes or so until the cheese is all bubbly and lightly brown.  Top with sour cream, salsa, sliced olives, jalapenos, scallions, and enjoy!  So YUMMO!!!

I like to top my Nachos with a salad, made from greens, tomato's, cucumbers, and olives, and top it with a light Italian salad dressing.

Both the Giants and the Jets are officially NY teams. Their offices are in NY but they play in NJ. And you know we LOVE the Jets!!!

Those Nachoes look yummy. I have to try this recipe. I'm not a fan of football. I hope your hubby get's his wish.
