These foil packet nachos are loaded with beef, tomatoes, green chiles cheese, & more! I love this easy foil packet recipe, in the oven or on the grill.

Cook Time 15minutes
Total Time 25minutes
½lblean ground beef
1 1ouncepacket Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
1 4.5ouncecan Old El Paso Green Chilesdrained
½ 14.5ouncecan diced tomatoesfully drained
½ 14.5ouncecan black beansdrained and rinsed
½cupdiced onion greenred, or white...whichever you love best!
2cupsMexican blend cheese
½cupfresh cilantro finely chopped
sour cream for garnish
Heat grill to medium high heat (or heat oven to 350F)
In a large skillet, brown beef over medium high heat. Stir in the taco seasoning and stir to coat. When almost browned, toss in the tomatoes and green chiles (both fully drained) and stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.
Fold two large 12x24 inch sheets of foil in half and fold up the edges to create the bottom of each packet. If you prefer smaller packets you can use 12x12 inch pieces and divide ingredients into fourths instead of halves.
Place half the chips at the bottom of each foil packet.
Sprinkle each with half the beef mixture, half the black beans, half the onion, and top with half the cheese. Lastly sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
Fold the other half of each foil packet and pinch shut. Cut a hole in the top of each packet as shown so steam can vent (and avoid chips getting too soggy).
Bake or grill for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Top with sour cream, jalapenos, or your fave nacho toppings.
