Fiesta Nachos with Guacamole

When I saw the Publix sale info for the week, and saw the Tostitos, my mind went straight to Nachos. Especially these, because they are so easy and filling! You can’t have Nachos without Guacamole! We love guacamole in our house. Those store bought tubs just don’t do it justice. It is so simple, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy this yummy dip at home!

These would be perfect to have on the opening day of football season! Your hubby would love you forever!

Now, when I make these Weekly Meal Deal Posts it is before the actual sale. So, I tend to use what I have on hand. Like this week. I am going to use ground turkey for the nachos because Publix has a super deal on it. I already had ground beef on hand, and the turkey wasn’t on sale on Wednesday when I made these. My recipes are made to be easy, they are also flexible. You can interchange some ingredients, or add something you like. I am all for making the recipe your own.

I am just here to show you some of the great meals you can make with ingredients that are on sale!

Fiesta Nachos

  • 1 lb ground Turkey (or beef)
  • 1 packet Taco Seasoning
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 bag tortilla chips (Tostitos)
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ cup tomato, chopped
  • ¼ cup black olives chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Cook ground Turkey and onion in a skillet on medium heat until cooked through.
  1. Drain if necessary, and add taco seasoning and 1/3 cup water. Cook on medium heat until meat is seasoned.
  1. Layer Totilla chips, Seasoned Turkey, and Cheese in an ungreased 13×9 dish. Add tomato and Olives (optional). I added cilantro, because I had it on hand. I also added refried beans, cause hubby wanted me to. :)
  2. Repeat layering until all ingredients are used.
  1. Place in oven for 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with Salsa, Sour Cream and Guacamole!
****Add what you like! Another option would be refried beans or black beans. ****
Short Cuts Guacamole
  • 1 Avocado
  • ½ tomato
  • ½ onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP Lime Juice
  • Dash of dried Cilantro, or sprig of fresh
  • Small jalapeno (optional) Mine came from my garden!
Cut Avocado in half. Make sure it is ripe.
There are 2 different kinds of Avocados, Hass and Florida.
Florida Avocados are the largest. For this batch I used 1 Hass. If you were going to use a large Florida Avocado I would suggest increasing the other ingredients.
I make this in my food processor.
So, I don’t chop the ingredients small becuase the food processor does that for me. Add the all of the ingredients to the food processor. Pulse until at desired consistency. Serve with nachos or just with tortilla chips!
If you are making this by hand Chop your Onion and tomato finely unless you would like a chunky guacamole. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mash together with a fork or potato masher.
