Picadillo Nachos

Ingredients
  • 1 recipe Picadillo (see below)
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Wholly Guacamole dip
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sliced olives
  • 1/2 cup Jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • Picadillo Ingredients:
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/8 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow pepper
  • 1/4 cup whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Picadillo Nachos Instructions: Prepare Picadillo. Next spread tortilla chips to cover a large oven-proof platter. Spoon Picadillo evenly onto tortilla chips. Sprinkle cheese on top of Picadillo. Bake at 350F in the oven for 5 – 7 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with Wholly Guacamole dip, sour cream, olives and jalapenos.
  2. Picadillo Instructions: Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over moderately low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 – 2 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring and breaking up any lumps. As the meat begins to lose its pink color, add the peppers and cumin. Cook for 6 – 7 minutes until the vegetables become translucent. Pour off any excess fat, add the raisins, tomato sauce, salt and pepper, and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 10 – 15 minutes. The Picadillo may be made 1 day in advance, kept covered, chilled, and reheated before serving in your dish.
