For a hearty appetizer, serve nachos topped with ground beef, beans and shredded Cheddar cheese. For extra flavor, try with fresh chorizo sausage instead of ground beef. Photo credit: Monet Moutrie from Anecdotes & Applecores.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Drain fat. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin and oregano. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Arrange tortilla chips in single layer on 2 lightly greased foil-lined shallow baking pans, overlapping chips if needed to cover bottom completely. Top each pan of chips evenly with meat mixture and cheese.
Bake both pans on separate oven racks 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with assorted toppings, such as sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced jalapeño peppers, sliced green onions or chopped fresh cilantro.
