  • Lightly brown ground meat on stovetop and drain excess fat. Prepare taco seasoning mix according to package directions and add to meat. Use 1/2 cup of meat for recipe and reserve the remainder for future use.
  • Arrange 20 whole nacho chips on a microwave safe plate.
  • Place 1/4 cup of salsa in mesh sieve or strainer to remove excess juice. Removing the juice will help to keep the chip from becoming soggy.
  • Use 1/4 cup of cheese to cover each chip and reserve remaining 1/4 cup for later.
  • Microwave for a short time to lightly melt the cheese.
  • Remove from microwave and add topping of 1 tablespoon of ground meat followed by a teaspoon of salsa on each chip. Then add remaining cheese, placing an additional tablespoon of cheese over the meat and salsa on each chip.
  • Place plate in microwave and heat for short amount of time to lightly melt second topping of cheese.
  • Provide garnishes of guacamole, sour cream, slices of jalapeno peppers and black olives for chips, so they can be added if desired.
  • Serve immediately after preparing.
