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!
