This weekend is the big game, aka the football playoffs, and I have one last recipe planned for my game day party menu, some Mexican shredded beef nachos! When I made the Mexican shredded beef the recently I could not help but think about making it again for nachos for party finger food! I mean, who could resist, crispy and crunch tortilla chips, topped with tasty tender shredded beef and plenty of melted cheese? Nachos could not be easier to make! You simply throw the tortilla chips onto a baking sheet and top with your choice of ingredients followed by the cheese which melts and holds everything on the chips so that you can easily pick them up. I topped these nachos with the Mexican shredded beef, a tasty chipotle and ancho cocoa enchilada sauce, onions and jalapenos along with the cheese. After they are baked I like to throw on some fresh and cool ingredients like guac, pico de gallo and sour cream. Yum! The trick to quick and easy nachos on game day is to have all of the ingredients ready ahead of time so I try to make the beef a day or two earlier and make the guac and salsa the day before so I can just assemble and bake just before the game!

These nachos look amazing, I'd like to have some as a meal or an appetizer. But what I love most is they start out as a meal, then use the leftovers for some nachos. Brilliant! Thank you for sharing these. I will be adding it to my rotation.
