Epic Beef Nachos Supreme

Calling all nacho lovers! This Epic Beef Nacho Supreme is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, perfect for game days, potlucks, or simply a satisfying weeknight meal. Loaded with savory ground beef, creamy refried beans, melty cheese, and a burst of fresh toppings, it's a flavor fiesta in every bite.

The Beauty of Customization:

The beauty of this recipe lies in its flexibility. Prepare the ground beef mixture ahead of time for a stress-free experience, or use leftover cooked ground beef to whip up these nachos in minutes. The nacho toppings are also your canvas to create! Feel free to add your favorites, from diced jalapenos and sliced olives to sour cream and guacamole.


  • The Base:
    • 2 large bags of tortilla chips (your favorite variety)
  • The Savory Beef Filling:
    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 1 packet taco seasoning
    • ½ onion, diced
  • The Creamy and Cheesy Goodness:
    • 1 can refried beans
    • 16 ounces shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)
  • The Fresh Finish:
    • 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
    • 2-3 green onions, chopped


  1. Preheat for Melty Goodness: Get your oven started by preheating it to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). This ensures the cheese melts beautifully and the nachos get warmed all the way through.
  2. Sizzling with Flavor: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and diced onion together. Break up the ground beef as it cooks for even browning. Sauté until the meat is cooked through and the onion is softened.
  3. Draining the Excess: Once browned, drain any excess fat from the skillet. This helps control the overall grease content of your nachos.
  4. Adding the Taco Magic: Reduce the heat to low and stir in the taco seasoning packet. Cook for a few minutes longer, allowing the flavors to meld. This creates the base for your delicious nacho filling.
  5. Preparing the Baking Sheets: Spread half of the tortilla chips evenly on each of two baking sheets. This ensures even distribution of toppings and makes for easier serving.
  6. The Layering Begins: Top each set of chips with half of the refried beans. The refried beans add a creamy element and help the other toppings adhere to the chips.
  7. Beefy Bliss: Sprinkle half of the seasoned ground beef mixture over each baking sheet of nachos. This ensures every bite gets a good helping of savory goodness.
  8. A Cheesy Dream: Divide the shredded cheese evenly between the two baking sheets. The cheese is the star of the show, so don't be shy!
  9. Baking to Melty Perfection: Bake the nachos in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. The exact baking time may vary depending on your oven. Keep an eye on them to avoid burning.
  10. Freshness Fiesta: Remove the nachos from the oven and immediately sprinkle them with the chopped tomatoes and green onions. The fresh toppings add a vibrant burst of flavor and color.
  11. Serve and Savor! Serve the Epic Beef Nacho Supreme immediately while everything is hot and melty. Grab your favorite chips and enjoy a delicious and satisfying nacho experience!
