Posted on Reddit by BongLeardDongLick.

He supplies the recipe after remarking, "These are actually pretty straight forward to make with ingredients from most grocery stores which is why I love nachos. Took me all of 20 minutes to whip everything together. The creme and nacho cheese are from scratch other than that everything else is store bought from the shelf/produce aisle."

"I never measure my seasoning everything is just to taste but I can tell you everything I did/used."


1lb Ground beef
1 Family sized bag Tostitos tortilla chips
2 Jalapeños
1 Poblano pepper
2 Tomatoes (medium sized)
1 yellow onion (you can use white if preferred)
1 can refried beans
Mexican blend shredded cheese
2 cans Rico's Gourmet Nacho Cheese (trust me, it's easier than making from scratch, I just happened to have some left over homemade nacho cheese)
1 container of sour cream
3 Garlic cloves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bottle lime juice
2 Stalks green onion
1 bottle of chunky salsa verde
Chipotle chili powder
Ranch seasoning/powder
Tony Chachere's Bold Creole Seasoning
Smoked Paprika


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Dice onion, tomato and poblano pepper then combine in bowl with a dash of lime juice and toss. Refrigerate until needed later.

Slice jalapeños to desired size (deseed them if you prefer a milder heat).

Finely mince garlic cloves.

Put desired amount of sour cream in bowl and slowly add lime juice while mixing until desired consistency (you can also use water to make sour cream more runny instead of using straight lime juice if you don't enjoy too much lime flavor). When the sour cream reaches consistency you desire, season with salt, pepper, chipotle powder, and smoked paprika to taste. Remember, you can always add more seasoning but you can't take any away unless you start over so add small amounts until you reach the flavor you desire. Refrigerate until needed later.

Add refried beans to small pot and add nacho cheese to a separate small pot on low and stir occasionally while working on other things.

Melt butter in medium/large skillet and add ground beef along with minced garlic cloves. Season ground beef with salt, pepper, ranch seasoning (generous), Tony Chachere's Bold, and cumin (light cumin).

When meat is cooked, change heat to low/simmer (do not drain the meat).

Pour bag of tortilla chips evenly across baking sheet tray and distribute refried beans over the chips. Add ground beef using a slotted spoon to allow fat from butter/meat to drip off until all chips have meat/beans on them (should still be ground beef and beans left over save to layer on later). Using a ladle, pour nacho cheese starting at one end slowly working to the opposite end until chips are evenly coated. Add diced onion/tomato/poblano pepper evenly across chips (again there should be plenty left over to layer on later). Add another layer of nacho cheese and add slices of jalapeño evenly.

After that you can essentially just layer whatever you have left over to your own desire including the chips. I normally do about 3 layers per bag of chips. Once you're done with the toppings, add a generous handful of Mexican blend shredded cheese and put in the oven for 3-6 minutes until melted.

Remove from oven and, starting in one corner, add Sriracha in a zig zag motion until chips are covered. Repeat starting from opposite corner with sour cream mixture (creme) and top with sliced green onions.

Post to Reddit. Profit.

Disclaimer: My girlfriend has a cilantro aversion which is why this recipe has no cilantro in it. Topping with cilantro instead of green onion may be preferable for some people and also making pico de gallo instead of just dicing the onions/tomato may also be preferable.

I also definitely feel like I'm missing a step in there somewhere but I'm also 5 margaritas deep and probably just second guessing myself.

@hippo - sorry, mate!

@morepiecesplz - that is a valid query, or perhaps complaint.

I live only 3 hours from Key West, yet I haven't had a margarita since my last visit there in the early 90s. Sigh. Want to take a trip down there?


Where's the margarita recipe?
