Macho Nachos

I've been meaning to post something on here since I joined the blog...and I've just been a slacker.

So finally here's something. It's no gourmet meal, but Ryan liked it. I got it off of another food blog-but I can't remember which one.
Macho Nachos

2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium white onion, finely chopped
1 Anaheim chili, finely chopped
1 lb lean ground beef
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 packet taco seasoning
1 15 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
½ Cup water
Tortilla Chips of choice (The Whole Grain Tostitos stayed crispy even after baking in the oven, great choice for nachos)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Black Beans (I just used canned ones, drained)
Sour Cream
Diced Tomatoes
1. Place oil into a large skillet or medium dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and chili pepper for 5 minutes then add the beef, salt and pepper. Cook until beef is browned. Stir in taco seasoning, fire roasted tomatoes and water. Simmer on low for 10 minutes. Place avocado, lime juice, salt and pepper into a medium bowl; mix until well combined.
2. Arrange tortilla chips onto an oven save plate. Sprinkle evenly with desired amount of cheese. *Bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top nachos with beans, guacamole, sour cream and diced tomatoes. Eat warm.

*I just microwaved it to melt the cheese.
