Sheet pan beef nachos are a quick and easy dinner or snack. Perfect for a crowd or movie night in with the family. Take these to any level you like. I made a separate pan vegetarian for my daughter, just as easy. Pick and choose what you like on your sheet pan beef nachos and customize to your taste. Who doesn’t love the easy one pan cook and clean up? Ok, so you use another pan to saute the ground beef. But that clean up happens while the nachos are in the oven, so no biggie.
Brown the ground beef, add the seasoning and cook for another minute or two. Foil line a large sheet pan, spray the foil lightly with cooking spray and spread a single layer of tortilla chips on the bottom. Spread the ground beef and then the black beans evenly over the chips.
Add the cheese. Bake until heated through and the cheese is melted.
Sprinkle on all your favorite toppings. We used fresh diced tomatoes, fresh sliced jalapenos, diced green onions, and cilantro. I slice up a lime for those of us that enjoy a fresh squeeze on our nachos.
Serve immediately! Nachos don’t get any easier.
