Loaded Nachos piles layers of crispy chips, seasoned beef, vegetables and lots of cheese to give you a total comfort food.
Nachos are an all time favorite of mine. After I posted my recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning, I new I needed to come up with a recipe for nachos and Loaded Nachos is where I ended up. And it definitely was the perfect place to end.
I double layer everything in this recipe, so be prepared for a lot of Loaded Nachos. This would be a great recipe to make for a party or BBQ. Serve the nachos with salsa, sour cream and wedges of lime. A squeeze of fresh lime juice really gives the nachos a nice punch. You could easily skip the meat and serve this as a vegetarian Loaded Nachos.

- In the same pan, add the olive oil, onion and peppers. Saute for approx. 5 minutes, until the onions and peppers start to soften.
