Nachos — the delicious crunchy meal or snack we all know and love. I can have just plain nachos, nothing but chips and cheese, maybe some pickled jalapenos, and I'd be completely satisfied!
In this recipe, we take everything we know and love about nachos and put it into a casserole. First we crunch tortilla chips. Next we layer browned and seasoned ground beef, black beans, corn and salsa. Finally we load it all up with cheese. We serve it with sour cream and lettuce to add that extra touch that brings the whole dish together. You can also serve it with a few slices of lime and fresh chopped cilantro to add a little extra tang!

Pro tip: If you have a nicely maintained spice pantry, it's usually cheaper to make your own spice mixes and store them for later use than to buy premixed versions. To make your own taco seasoning, simply combine 1 tablespoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon sweet paprika, ½ teaspoon oregano, 1½ teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon red chili flakes. Use as much as desired, and store any remaining mix in a jar or plastic bag for later use.
