This is a taco/nacho mash up. Apparently it is also a people group in South Sudan, but this post has nothing to do with that. This is what you get when you make all the ingredients for tacos but all you have sitting around is corn chips. They’re tacos that you eat like nachos; therefore they are tachos. The best thing about this “recipe” is that you can totally switch out ingredients according to your preferences. This is what I used this time:
This is a great meal to serve if you have people with different allergies/preferences. They can take what they want and leave the rest. The most important part is your taco seasoning. I use Old El Paso’s Original Taco Seasoning. It has neither gluten nor dairy in it where as many seasonings have one and/or the other. You could also make seasoning from scratch, but I am making enough things from scratch that this is one of my cheater recipes.
1 package Old El Paso Original Taco Seasoning
1-2 pound ground beef (omit for vegetarian)
1/2 onion, chopped
2/3 c. water (you can just fill up the seasoning pouch with water and it’s the right amount)
1 package Wholly Guacamole
1 jar Tostitos Salsa (or Pace or any other- just read the label)
1 bunch green onions, chopped (I put the white parts in with the beef so they could cook down some)
2 cups cooked brown rice
1.5 cups cooked black beans
1 bunch chopped cilantro
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 bag chopped spinach, raw
1 bag corn chips (I use Tostitos, Santitas, HEB, etc.)
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese (optional if you are not avoiding dairy)
Brown the beef and the chopped onions and white parts of green onions. Add the seasoning and 2/3 c. water and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Chop all of the veggies.
Set everything out buffet style and have people make a bowl of whatever they want in it. Use the chips to dip the ingredients.
