Nacho recipe is an excellent finger food! It's quick and fairly cheap to make too!
I am showing you this recipe with ground beef. However, this ground beef nacho recipe is also extremely flexible because you can add more vegetables as you please or throw in some chicken if you'd like.

Total time: 45 min - 1 h
Ingredients (2 servings):
ground beef (extra lean, about 300 g)
tortilla chips (1 bag, about 340 g)
1/2 green pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon cajun spice (optional)
1 to 2 cups salsa sauce
1 to 2 cups of cheese (example: mozarella and/or marbled cheddar)
Part 1 (30 min)
Defrost the ground beef (1). Preheat the oven to 425ºF (2). Chop the onion and green pepper (3). Grate the cheese and put it on a bowl or a measuring cup (4). Open the tortilla chip bag and spread the chips on a baking tray (5). Wait for the oven to reach the right temperature and put the tray with the chips in the oven (6), and bake them until golden brown (about 5 to 10 min). The baking time will differ depending on your brand/kind of tortilla chips. If you wish, you can move on to Part 2 while keeping an eye on the chips.
Part 2 (30 min)
The ground beef should be done defrosting. Squish and spread it evenly on a non-stick frying pan (1). Sprinkle the garlic powder, pepper, cajun spice (optional) (2). Turn on the medium heat (3). Cook the beef for about 10 min (4). Add the onions and green pepper pieces and cook them for about 2 min (5), and then turn off the stove. If you have not done so, take the chips out of the oven when they are more or less golden brown (6). Spread the ground beef and vegetables all over the chips (7). Pour the salsa sauce on the mix and use a fork to evenly spread the sauce over the chips (8). Bake it for 10 to 12 min (9).
Place the tray on some coasters and serve.
