Hey America, it’s Super Bowl Sunday!
Time to masticate for 6 hours straight, and when doing so for so long, you want to be chewing on things that taste good. One thing that is surely to be a hit at your Super Bowl shindig large or small, is a big ol’ plate of cheesy, delicious, nachos.
Here is a recipe that is a guaranteed bullseye:
1 pound ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons hot sauce (optional)
1 (1 ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix
1 (14 ounce) can refried beans
1 (14.5 ounce) package tortilla chips
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (4 ounce) can sliced black olives
1 ripe tomato, diced
1 bunch green onions, sliced
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large skillet over medium heat, begin to brown the ground turkey. Stir in garlic, pepper, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon chives. Stir in 1 tablespoon hot sauce. When the turkey is browned, stir in taco seasoning mix according to package instructions.
Pour the beans into a microwave safe bowl, and heat in the microwave until softened. Stir in 1 tablespoon chives and 1 tablespoon hot sauce.
Spread the tortilla chips across the bottom of a baking sheet. Spoon the beans mixture over the chips. Then spread the turkey mixture across the top. Sprinkle cheese, then olives, tomatoes, green onions, and remaining 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes over the top.
Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, usually about 15 minutes.
