Bite-Size Nachos

Bite-size Nachos are the perfect snack for kids of all ages - quick, easy, nutritious, and delicious! Kids love to help make them, and they are great for after-school snacks and parties. My grandkids love these, and Noah said, "Mamaw, put this on your Blog!" I let him give them a name, and here's our recipe!


Leftover Taco Meat**
Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese 
Tostitos Scoops
Other optional toppings (onions, jalapenos, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc.)
Tabasco Sauce


Place Tostitos Scoops on a microwavable plate. Place a spoonful of Taco Meat on each Scoop. Carefully sprinkle the cheese on top.

Microwave for 15-20 seconds on high, or until cheese is melted and meat is hot.

Optional: Add additional toppings.

Serve with salsa and/or sour cream, if desired.

Nancy's Notes:

  • This recipe brings back memories of my 3 sons coming home from school "starving" and making a huge plate of Nacho Chips from leftover Taco Meat to eat before dinner!
  • If the Taco Meat is frozen, thaw before putting it on the Scoop.
  • **If you do not have leftover Taco Meat, brown 1-1/2 to 2 pounds of ground chuck, ground turkey, or ground venison with 1 chopped onion in a skillet and cook until done. Add 1 packet of Taco Bell Taco Seasoning Mix and water and mix well. Cook on medium heat until most of the water is absorbed - about 5-7 minutes. For the amount of water, I pour water halfway in the Taco Seasoning Packet 2 times and "swish" to remove the remaining mix before adding it to the meat.

Quick, easy, nutritious, and DELICIOUS!!!
