What You'll Need:

+ 1 bag tortilla chips

For the Ground Beef:
+ 1 tbsp. Avocado oil

+ 2 lbs. 90/10 ground beef

+ 2 tbsp. taco seasoning

+ ½ white onion, diced

For the Cheese Sauce:
+ 2 cups whole milk

+ 3 ½ cups sharp yellow cheddar cheese and pepperjack, grated

+ 2 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp water

+ 1 can diced green chilis

+ 1 tsp onion powder

+ 1 tsp garlic powder

+ 1 tsp chili powder

+ 2 tsp salt

+ 1/2 tsp black pepper

+ 1/4 tsp cayenne

For the Pico de Gallo:
+ 3 large tomatoes

+ ½ large white onion, finely diced

+ 1 jalapeno or serrano, seeded and finely chopped (adjust based on preference)

+ Juice of 2 limes (4 tbsp.)

+ ¼ cup cilantro, chopped

+ Salt to taste

+ Pepper to taste

Additional Toppings:
+ Homemade Guacamole

+ Pickled jalapeno rounds

+ Crema or sour cream


1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add avocado oil and onions. Saute for 3-4 minutes or until translucent. Add the ground beef, break up with a spatula, and cook until completely browned (about 8-10 minutes). Drain the fat and then add the taco seasoning and ¼ cup of water. Stir to combine then set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Add the spices, salt, and pepper and whisk in the cornstarch slurry. Simmer for 2 mins then slowly whisk in the cheese. Once the cheese is melted and the sauce is creamy, add in the diced green chilis. Stir to combine and taste for seasoning.

3. To assemble, place half of the tortilla chips onto a large platter and layer half of the ground beef, nacho cheese sauce, and pico de gallo. Repeat this process and top with guacamole, pickled jalapeno, crema or additional toppings of your choice.

4. Serve and enjoy with a crisp Pepsi!
