Game Day Nachos

Pin It Now!

I've been on something I call the hot sauce crazy train as of late. I'm craving foods that can be enhanced with the liquid gold that is hot sauce. I don't know how it happened, but I've just discovered how much I love the red, peppery liquid. I've put it on just about every meal I've made and every snack I've snacked.

It's become such a big part of my life that my sister decided to out me to the public via twitter. Although it was quite hilarious, it brought me to the realization that I might need to cut back on the hot sauce intake. 

For lunch today I made Game Day Nachos. Just a fancy name for the easiest-most-delicious-nachos-around-town. I of course doused my entire nacho plate with good ole fashioned Tabasco sauce. I legitimately got carried away. I think it has to do with how slow the sauce drips out of that cute little glass bottle. It doesn't seem like enough is coming out. I guess I need to learn the phrase "a little goes a long way".

My.lips.were.on.fire.

The kind of fire that required me to let my lips rest in my glass of chocolate milk for sweet relief. It was ridiculous. Thankfully, at the time I was all alone. My husband and the plumber were scoping out the scenario for our future master suite remodel. That's another story for another day though. 
I guess what I'm trying to say is make these nachos, they are delicious and quick. Just be careful how much hot sauce you dribble on top. You just might have to look like a fool soaking your lips in a glass of milk! 
Game Day Nachos

1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
tortilla chips {the scoops work best}

Toppings:
shredded cheese {I used mild cheddar & monterey jack}
sliced black olives
black beans, drained and rinsed
sour cream
salsa
Tabasco sauce
Other topping ideas: diced tomato, shredded lettuce, banana peppers
Cook beef and drain. Add taco seasoning and 2/3 cup water. Simmer for 5 minutes. 
Dish up the meat and toppings into separate bowls and serve buffet style so everyone can make their own just they way they like it. Pop each plate into the microwave for 30-45 seconds to melt the cheese.
Enjoy!
