A friend of mine shared this recipe video on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago, and I knew immediately I had to make these nachos.
La Bomba Nachos, fools!
So I did change some things. First, I nixed the mozzarella cheese. People. Mozzarella cheese has no place in Mexican cooking. Stop mixing cuisines, mkay? K. I replaced it with Monterey Jack cheese. Second, when I looked at the recipe and compared it to the video, I had a hard time believing she was using only a half pound of ground beef. So I used more like 3/4 lb ground beef. I shredded all the cheese as indicated in the recipe, but didn’t use all of it. It was A LOT for that amount of beef. I used almost all of it though.
Don’t skip the cilantro – these nachos are heavy and need that pop of freshness.
Next time – I would probably drop some pickled jalapenos on top too. These were VERY tasty as-is, but I was looking for a little spice or kick. If you like spicy, I’d highly recommend adding some!
