Ground Turkey Nachos


Nachos are a favorite in my home. We usually make nachos whenever we have grilled meat or shredded chicken leftovers. This recipe is made with ground turkey making these nachos simple to make any day of the week. The best part is they only take 20 minutes to make and I guarantee your family will love them.


These nachos are topped with lots of delicious toppings and are super satisfying. When it comes to cheese for my nachos, I like to use white melty cheese such as Oaxaca, Quesadilla, or Monterey Jack, but in this recipe I couldn’t resist using pepper jack cheese for a kick of spice.
