  1. In a sauté pan, heat oil and add spices to both sides of the ground beef.
  2. Once the oil is hot, place the seasoned ground beef in a pan. Use a wooden spoon to break up the ground beef.
  3. Let it cook for 5 minutes and add the black beans.
  4. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the ground beef is fully cooked.
  5. Place a sieve over a bowl, and strain the ground beef mixture into the sieve to remove the fatty liquid.
  6. Add Pico de Gallo ingredients to a bowl and mix together.

Nacho Cheese Sauce:

  1. To a saucepan, add in the butter and flour, and cook on medium heat. Mix them together until the butter is completely melted.
  2. Add in the heavy cream and cheese, and let cook, mixing periodically, until the cheese is completely melted and smooth.
  3. Turn the mixture off of the flame, add in the roasted red peppers, and mix them into the nacho cheese.

California Avocado Simple Game Guacamole:

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl, and mix together. With a fork, press down on the avocado to lightly mash them into the mixture.


  1. To build the nachos, first place the corn chips on the bottom of the plate.
  2. Distribute the nacho cheese, ground beef mixture, Pico de Gallo, guacamole, and toppings evenly over the corn chips.
  3. For an even more decadent nacho plate, add another layer of Doritos again, and another layer of the toppings.
