Donna's Nachos


Donna's nachos are made with ground beef, for a hearty and delicious snack.


  • 2 large bags of tortilla chips, whole
  • 2 cans of refried beans
  • 1-1/2 pounds "lean" ground beef
  • 2 packs of Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 2 large packages of cheddar cheese, 24 to 32 ounces
  • 1 large can of Jalapeno peppers
  • 2 medium onions


Ahead of time, shred your cheese in a cheese grater. Chop your onions in small pieces. Cut your Jalapenos in slices. You can buy them already sliced if you want but the flavor is not as good! Brown your hamburger meat and drain the fat (very important)!

Put in the Taco seasoning mix with a little water. Mix well and cook until it cooks down and is NOT soupy. Heat beans on low heat. Put a spoonful of heated refried beans on each chip When hamburger meat with seasoning is finished cooking place a spoonful on each individual chip. Then garnish each chip with a lot of cheese, onion and Jalapeno. If you don't want the hassle of making these yourself, you can always prepare everything and let everyone make their own individual nacho. Serve with hot sauce (Picante).
