Fall is nearly here and you with it comes the start of football season, thankfully on both accounts. But my crazy schedule has yet to slow down and I haven't had much time for some new recipes to fix on game day. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of the recipes I have done that would work great for a game day in your own living room or easily fixed while tailgating. The first up is Tex-Mex Nachos!
I fixed this for the last Superbowl and it was a hit, not to mention it's incredibly easy to make more for a crowd and fairly healthy; for those that are inclined to watch their waist line.
3/4 pound ground round
1/4 cup green onion
3/4 cup taco sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
1 (8-3/4 ounce) can no-salt-added whole-kernel corn, drained
2 ounces baked tortilla chips( about 3 cups or about 42 small chips)
3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup chopped tomato
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup bottled salsa
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
Cook beef and green onions in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; return beef mixture to pan. Stir in taco sauce, garlic powder, pepper, beans, and corn; cook until thoroughly heated. Spoon 1 cup beef mixture over 3/4 cup chips; top with 3/4 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup tomato, 1.4 cup cheese, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients. Yield: 4 servings.
