Holy Guacamole Che-Che-Cheezy Nachos!

I was talking to my older sister this morning between classes, she said that she was talking to my mom the other day about how dedicated I must be to school since I haven't been blogging as much . . . keep thinking that ladies! Its true . . . I am the eternal scholar . . . but you know I love to blog . . . so heres a college entree for ya . . . Nachos!
Lets be honest, nachos are easy to make . . . but they are a fun indulgence at our house. Since I have been married I think I have only made them twice, both times totally different but equally d-lish!
My measurements are just "guesstimates" so add more or less of whatever, also I use leftovers for tacos salad, burritos, etc . . . so two meals come from one time cooking! (Time saver!)

Holy Guacamole Che-Che-Cheezy Nachos!

Corns Chips
3/4 cup Queso Cheese
1 can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp Taco Seasoning
2 Green Onions, Sliced
1/2 cup Tomatoes, chopped
Jalapeno slices
3/4 cup Guacamole
1/2-3/4 cup Salsa (I love extra Chunky!)
1/3 cup Sour Cream (I use fat free)

Brown the ground beef in a frying pan, add the taco seasoning and black beans and mix. Pile corn chips on a plate and top with desired amount of beef and bean mixture, heat the queso cheese dip and pour over the chips, dollop guacamole and salsa over all the chips, sprinkle the tomatoes, green onions and jalapenos over the chips. Dollop the sour cream in the middle. Chow down! Serves 3-5 people.

You can honestly add or subtract anything to nachos, I also like to use chicken, corn, re fried beans, grated cheese, etc. We like nachos for movie nights!

Please don't add or subtract anything. I'll take them just the way you are.
Tell me what you are studying in school. Did I miss it somewhere? Where are you going to school? I'd love to go back some day for a PH.d. I love learning and hope I get another crack at an education.

Prudy . . . I'm still going to college for the first time around! I had a 2.5 year break to serve in Germany, met my hubby 3 days after I got home, got mono and was hospitalized and bed ridden for a month (no fun!) and then started school again. I have hopped between 2 schools in S. Ut and will graduate with a Social Science composite and a degree in secondary ed. in the fall of 09. (What a mouth full!) My hub would be the candidate going for a PHD, not me . . . right now anyway!
