Shredded Beef Nachos Recipe

These Shredded Beef Nachos need to happen in your life. Like this weekend. Or sometime this week. Or better yet, why not today!

Mercy are they delicious!




Since I make my slow cooker shredded beef routinely, these shredded beef nachos only take a few minutes to throw together. Which makes them absolutely perfect for a quick supper or when friends drop by to watch the game. You know, sofagating. Is that a term? If not, we totally need to make it one.

Thankfully, the rest of the ingredients are items that I usually keep on hand in my pantry or refrigerator, making these about the easiest throw together fantastic-ness evah!

Tortilla chips, shredded beef, black beans, cheese and a fun twist on my pico de gallo all thrown into a skillet makes this a one skillet macho taco dish of the most supreme sorts, too!

    I am printing this to try ASAP. Your link for 2 cups shredded beef is broken. (I found it but you might want to correct.) Thank you!
