    The nachos came out extremely delicious! I did leave a few jalapeño seeds to give it an extra kick to each bite!

    really good! Eat it right when you finish making it though, it can get a little soggy if left out to long.

    This was super good! I made it with ground turkey instead and it was delicious. My husband can’t eat cheese, so we were able to pick and choose which toppings we each liked to put on our sides. We will definitely make it again.

    My new favorite nacho recipe! I used sliced white cheddar and feta out of necessity (worked great by the way) but the bean and meat with the oven baking were spot-on good!

    Delicious! I didn't put it into the oven like this...I just put toppings on top of meat in same skillet I cooked meat in. Melted the cheese in the oven and the added the rest after.

    Fun dinner! The oven baked nachos were so much better than just regular chips. The whole family enjoyed it. I did used grilled chicken that I chunked and seasoned per recipe.

    I made a few modifications when I made it earlier this evening - they are as follows: - 1 pound 85% lean ground beef (would have used chicken thighs, but COVID-19 stole everything from our grocery store) - "traditional" style round tortilla chips - seasoning used on meat: red cayenne pepper, chili powder, Kroger steakhouse seasoning, red pepper flakes, and Lowry's salt All in all, husband approved! Definitely making again!

    Not bad for a healthy version of nachos. Could not find ground chicken in my local grocery stores, so I put 3 breasts thru a meat grinder. Also left out the cumin, that spice is not one you will find in our Hispanic-American kitchen.

    I work for Yummly, but I wanted to give this recipe a try for New Years. I didn’t have ground chicken on hand so I used a thin cut of steak instead of ground chicken but I seasoned it the same as the recipe tastes and then broiled it and mixed it back in with the beans to top the chips. I also added salsa to my plate after it cooked because I wanted a bit more spice but it turned out really delicious! I would definitely make this again!
