Grey Cup Nachos Recipe | Allrecipes

This is a recipe from my early days of cooking. The first time I made these was for the Grey Cup (Canadian Football Championship) of 1992 and they've been yummy ever since. Enjoy. This is a great base for nachos. Top with grated cheese, sour cream, salsa, green onions--whatever you like.

  • When the meat is done cooking, add the bell pepper, jalapeno pepper and sliced mushrooms to the skillet, and lower heat to medium. Cook and stir until vegetables are about halfway cooked, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the cheese sauce until everything is evenly coated.

  • Serve tortilla chips topped with the meat and cheese sauce, or serve buffet style where each person can top their own nachos.

Delicious and easy to make! I added 1 can vegetarian refried beans and a can of sweet corn (drained) and allowed guest to serve themselves. We placed the meat in a bol sprinkled cheese over it and stacked chips along our bowls for easy scooping. Read More

Hmm... I sure had to make a lot of changes to this recipe. But I think it's a decent base. I eliminated the green pepper and mushrooms. I used pickled jalapeno pepper slices instead of a chopped fresh one. I added 2 cups of shredded cheddar and a 3.8 oz. can of sliced black olives. And I served it with sides of salsa and sour cream. The cheesy beef mixture is really good and is what makes this recipe unique. Read More

This recipe is tasteful and yummy. It went so quickly I'll have to double it next time. The only change I made was using Turkey meat instead of red. It is a must try. Read More
