Prep: Heat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Brown beef: Add olive oil to large skillet over medium-high heat, then add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain if desired, then stir in taco seasoning and salsa.
Assemble: Place tortilla chips in single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Top with ground beef mixture, black beans, corn, olives and cheese.
Bake: Place into oven and bake until heated through and the cheeses have melted, about 5-6 minutes.
Top with tomato, onion, jalapeño and cilantro and serve with sour cream.
Quick note about ingredient amounts: This makes for a great appetizer/finger food with a pretty balanced blend of chips and beef, but if you want to turn this into a more substantial meal for a crowd (or if you're feeding teen boys, ha!), you can easily double the amount of beef and salsa.
Beef: This recipe also works well with ground turkey.Taco Seasoning: If you'd rather make your own, click here for my recipe!Salsa: I used Newman's Own Mild, but use whatever you enjoy! I wouldn't recommend a salsa with fruit here though (like pineapple or peach), because the other flavors in the toppings work better with an entirely savory salsa.Cheese: I used an ominous blend of "Mexican Cheese" from the grocery store, but you can use whatever melty cheese you enjoy. Cheddar is really good, too!
Don't overbake the Nachos, or the toppings will burn really fast!
