Need something in a hurry? These nachos might just be what you’re looking for. They can be on the table in about 30 minutes. You can change it up with ground turkey or ground chicken too.  You can make the meat ahead also which is a double bonus. Come home and add the meat and cheese to the tortilla chips. Bake and while cooking chop up the fresh ingredients to add when it comes out of the oven.

I made homemade guacamole to go with it and serve it on the side with sour cream. When buying avocados if you are going to use them right away, look for ones that the skin has darkened on and yield slightly to pressure when squeezed. When the skins are green they will take a couple of days to ripen.

As you can see I did some individual ones but when feeding more than a few people I bake them on a cookie sheet.
