You can even change the recipe up a bit if you want. Use chicken or ground beef instead of ground buffalo if you want to. Or, add refried beans as a topping. Maybe use the packaged taco seasoning instead of making your own. I used to get the packaged taco seasoning, but eventually figured that I would just make my own. It's really easy if you have the spices on hand.
If you have never had ground buffalo, you should try it. It's actually healthier for you than beef. Full of flavor but lower on the saturated fat. If you didn't know better, you would have no idea that you were eating buffalo instead of beef. Look at your local Target or Whole Foods. Both places have it. I use the Maverick Ranch Brand. They put out really good meat. Also beef.
So here it is! Ole Senor/Senorita!
What's For Dinner Wednesday? RECIPE: LOADED UP NACHOS
Hardware: Nothing special needed, unless you decide to use a mortar and pestle to make your seasoning mix. Not really necessary, I just like to use mine when mixing spices. Oh, and a large baking sheet for popping these into the oven for warming.
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tblsp Chili Powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 lb ground buffalo or beef ( I use very lean meat so there is little grease) or boneless skinless chicken breast
2/3 cup beef broth or if using Chicken, 1 cup of chicken broth.
Seasoning mixture above
2 small avocados
3 squeezes of lime juice (little less than 1/4 lime)
1/4 tsp salt
Tortilla Chips ( I used Organic Blue Corn)
Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
Shredded Lettuce (I like romaine, sliced very thin)
Optional: I just didn't have these on hand, but they would be perfect. Diced Fresh Tomatoes, Warm Refried Beans.
1) Bring oven to 250F Degrees.
2) Make Seasoning mix: Using a Mortar and Pestle if you have one, or a bowl if not, mix together the Cumin, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Paprika, Oregano and Salt.
