Nachos Ranchero...Olé

This meal is quick and easy to make after a busy work day.  We especially love it on Mondays... so easy!

Ingredients
1 lb. ground beef (I use ground turkey)
1 can baked beans
1 can whole kernel corn
¼ c. barbecue sauce
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. mustard
¾ c. shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream and salsa, optional
7 c. tortilla chips (We like Tostitos Scoops)


I find it impossible to get an appetizing picture of anything with
melted cheese and ground meat.  Trust me, this is delicious!
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef (turkey) over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
  3. Stir in the baked beans, corn, barbecue sauce, ketchup, and mustard; heat through.
  4. Place a single layer of chips on an oven-safe platter.  Spoon meat mixture onto chips and sprinkle with cheese.  Repeat, layering chips, meat mixture, and cheese.
  5. Place in preheated oven until cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).
  6. Serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.
Yum-O!  Enjoy!

We love nachos around our house! Tostitos are our favorite chips, but I never thought about using the "Scoops" in our nachos. What a great idea!
