Beef Barbacoa Nachos

We have nachos, tacos, enchiladas, or tostadas at least once a week in my house. We make enough where there is always leftovers for the next day. I made Barbacoa Beef for street tacos and today we had the leftover barbacoa beef over nachos. I love making Nachos for the family. It is a fun informal meal. We all crowd into the middle of the table and eat off the tray. We play fight over the chips that are loaded with toppings. It is a fun meal with lots of laughs.

We make nachos with my Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos too. Just like my Barbacoa Beef I get two meals out of my Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos too. I either make nachos or quesadillas the next day with that recipe. We eat a lot of Mexican food but, who doesn’t? It is so good! Especially when you have fresh tomatoes and cilantro from your garden.

Toppings for Barbacoa Beef Nachos

Add these toppings to your Nachos.

Shredded Cheese, I use sharp cheddar.
Diced Red Onion
Chives
Sliced Jalapenos
Sliced Black Olives
Diced Tomatoes
Cilantro
Lettuce
Sour Cream
Guacamole
Taco Sauce
Salsa
Pinto Beans

Toast the chips first. Do not skip this part. Toasting gives the chips a nice crunch and the chips won’t get soggy until all those toppings. Plus it makes nachos taste so much better.
