for the beef:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

for the nachos:

  • 1 bag corn tortilla chips more or less*
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/4 cup pico de gallo OR salsa
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • 2 tablespoon plain dairy free yogurt


  • Start by cooking the beef: add all ingredients to a skillet and cook beef until it's no longer pink.
  • While the beef is cooking, prepare the nachos: line a baking sheet with tortilla chips. Once the beef is cooked, pour it on top of the nachos, then add the avocado, salsa, jalapeño, onion, and cilantro. Last, drizzle the nachos with yogurt.
  • Enjoy!
  • To reheat: If you need to reheat these, heat the oven to 400°, then place the baking sheet in the oven for 5-10 minutes to warm up the beef. With that said, these nachos are best served fresh.


*The amount you use will largely depend on how many people you're trying to feed. If you want to feed a LOT of people, you'll want to use a whole bag of chips, and divide them between 2 baking sheets
