Southwestern Ground Pork Nachos

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 12 to 15 minutes
Serves: Makes 4 main-dish servings, or 8 appetizer servings
Ingredients:
  • 1 pound Swift Premium® Ground Pork
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Half of a 13 ounce bag restaurant-style tortilla chips
  • 2 cups finely shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend (8 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato
  • 1/4 cup canned sliced jalapeño chiles, drained
  • Desired toppings, such as salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and/or cilantro (optional)
Cooking Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Brown pork with chili powder, garlic salt, onion powder, and cumin in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat about 6 minutes or until pork is no longer pink, breaking pork in to 3/4 inch crumbles.
  2. To assemble nachos, place one-third of the tortilla chips in a single layer on a 12 inch round baking sheet. Sprinkle with one-fourth of the cheese; then one-third each of the pork mixture, beans, tomato, and jalapeños. Repeat layers 2 more times, mounding the nacho platter by making each layer slightly smaller than the previous layer. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake nachos in oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese layers are evenly melted. Serve immediately and, if desired, with toppings.
