Cheesy Macho Nachos

INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons oil 
1 small yellow onion, diced 
1/2 pound ground beef 
1 tablespoon ancho chili powder (regular chili powder is fine if you don’t have the ancho variety) 1/2 teaspoon cumin 
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 bag (about 12 ounces) corn tortilla chips 
4 cups cheese of your choice (I used two cups White Vermont Sharp Cheddar and two cups Yellow American Cheese from the deli) Sour Cream Salsa Pickled jalapeños DIRECTIONS 

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion until translucent.  Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the ground beef to the pan. Use a large spoon or other utensil to break the meat up. Add in cumin, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and salt. Cook until the ground beef is cooked through, then drain off any excess fat. In a large 9×13 inch casserole dish, spread out half the chips. Spoon half of the meat on the chips, and half of the cheese. Repeat with the remaining chips, meat, and cheese. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until all of the cheese is melted. Serve with salsa, sour cream, pickled jalapeños, and any other toppings you’d like.
