Ultimate Nachos

Well the NFL playoffs are here again and for us that means lots of fun get togethers with friends and family.  Tonight we are going to my brothers place for an Ultimate Nacho feast.  There is nothing fancy about Ultimate Nachos, but it always seems to satisfy all party-goers.  I make some slight changes to the normal Nacho Bar to amp up the flavor and make it more fun!

Ingredients

2-3 lbs Lean Ground Beef

Assorted Bell Peppers

Onion

Fresh Jalapenos

Rotel Tomatoes

Jar of Pepperoncinis

Shredded Cheese

Sour Cream

Avacado

Lime Juice/Limes

Garlic

Salsa

Tortilla Chips/Tortillas

First brown ground beef w/ diced onion in the meat.  I usually am not crazy about onions in general, but when they are cooked with ground beef, they give the beef some nice flavor.  Salt and pepper ground beef/onion mixture to taste.  After meat is done cooking, drain and put into the crock pot.  Add to this a whole jar of pepperoncinis including the juice as well as diced bell peppers, jalapenos, one packet of dry Italian dressing and one packet taco seasoning.  For the liquid, you can use beer, broth or water.  It does not really matter as the spices and peppers are going to do the seasoning.  Mix all ingredients together and turn crock pot on low.  Let this mixture come together for 4 hrs or so and it will be packed with flavor.

In a seperate bowl take the meat out of the avacados, add the juice of 1/2 of a lime, garlic, and large scoop of your favorite salsa.  You can cilantro to this, but I am personally not a big fan of cilantro, so I leave this out.  Blend this mixture well with a fork.  This makes for the perfect stirring tool because it allows chunks of avacado to remain in the guacamole.  When guacamole is to your desired consistency, put in fridge to chill.

Serve meat mixture with chips or tortillas with shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, tomotoes, and hot sauce.

Enjoy

With the playoffs on this weekend.  What are you making?
