Get These Nachos Ready for Your Next Gathering

Enjoy these nachos on Taco night as a delicious way to switch things up!

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit on the broil setting and heating a medium skillet on the stove. Once hot, add your lean ground turkey and taco seasoning to the pan and cook until all of the pink has been cooked out, breaking up into chunks. In the last minute, add the black beans and let them get warm.

Meanwhile, spread the tortilla chips in an even layer over a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Top with the cooked turkey and black bean mixture, then sprinkle with cheese. Place the tray in the oven and broil for about five minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is a bit bubbly.

While the nachos are in the oven, add all of the creamy jalapeno sauce ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Once done, remove the nachos from the oven. Spread the other toppings including the shredded lettuce and salsa over top. Then, drizzle or serve with the creamy jalapeno sauce. Go ahead, dig in! Or shall we say dive?
