A note about serious food allergies

Crunchy, cheesy, and endlessly satisfying, these nachos deserve the title of "Ultimate." We start with house-baked corn tortilla chips (you'll never want to go back after trying these) slathered with seasoned beef, melty Mexican cheeses, salsa, and flash pickled onions. Crowned with cool sour cream, tomatoes, and cilantro, these nachos pack all of the texture and flavor you crave.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a nonstick baking sheet. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Cut tomato into a fine dice. Peel onion and slice into 1/4" thick rounds. Quarter tortillas into chip-shaped triangles. Stem cilantro.

  2. 2

    Bake the Tortilla Chips

    In a large mixing bowl, add tortilla triangles and 1 Tbsp. olive oil and toss. Ensure triangles are lightly coated with oil and evenly arrange on a baking sheet (no overlapping). Place in oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from oven and sprinkle with a dash of salt. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Saute the Ground Beef

    In a medium pan, sauté the ground beef over high heat until browned and no pink remains, about 6-8 minutes. Once cooked, add 1/4 cup of water and taco seasoning and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until a light sauce forms. Salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low.

  4. 4

    Pickle the Onions

    In another medium pan over high heat, bring the vinegar, sugar, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/4 cup of water to a boil. Once boiling, add onion slices and reduce heat to a low simmer, stirring onions until they turn bright pink and liquid reduces. Once pickled, remove from heat and pan and let cool before serving.

  5. 5

    Assemble and Bake Nachos

    Pile corn chips in an oven-safe pan or dish. Add seasoned beef atop the chips. Top the beef with the Mexican cheese blend. Place in the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and keep warm until ready to serve.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Nachos are best served family-style, so use the oven-safe pan you melted the cheese in. Add salsa atop the nachos. Add a drizzle of sour cream.Add the pickled onions atop the nachos. Garnish with diced tomatoes and fresh cilantro leaves.
