{Cactus-Canyon Style} Nachos

On the Menu Today~
{Cactus Canyon-Style} Nachos

This recipe is my version of some delicious nachos
I recently had at the Milwaukee Brewers Game.
Fast, Easy and So Delicious!
At the Brewer game,
nachos are served in a large helmet or
a smaller portion is served in a bowl.
I opted for the smaller serving size,
which was more than plenty.
After I got home,
I keep thinking about those nachos!
I knew it might be some time before I went to another game so..
I decided to make my own version of
the popular nachos I devoured at the game.
They turned out fantastic.
Now we can have delicious nachos at home, anytime.
Even though these nachos are delicious,
there is something about eating nachos at the big game..
Everything just seems to taste better while watching a baseball game.

Nacho Chips are smothered with
Seasoned Ground Beef,
then topped with warm
Ro-tel Velveeta Cheese Dip,
piled high with Fresh Pico de Gallo and
finished with a dollop of Sour Cream.
(Sliced pickled jalapenos are optional.)

Looks delicious, doesn't it!
Believe it or not,
there are tortilla chips buried in there...
somewhere underneath all that goodness.

Let's go to the recipe~
