‘GMA’ Anchor Tailgate Challenge: Lara's Nittany Nachos
These Fully-Loaded Nachos Are Sure to Be a Game Day Hit
Lara Spencer's treat is the latest offering in the "GMA" anchor tailgating challenge. What's cool about this is you don't often have an oven at a tailgate. This is a great method of getting excellent nachos right in a frying pan!
In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat flatten the ground beef like a pancake and brown on one side. Add the spices for the ground beef and cook until rich brown color on both sides. Chop meat with a heavy grade metal spatula until meat is cooked through and crumbled. Set aside.
To make the guacamole, in a separate bowl combine all ingredients for the guacamole and mash with a potato masher.
In two (12 to 14-inch) skillets with tops spray the skillets with olive oil cooking spray layer both bottoms of the skillet with one-quarter of the bag of chips. Top with one-quarter of the beef, cheddar, Monterey Jack, salsa black beans, and pickled jalapeños if using. Repeat for second layer in each skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat until cheese is melted. Top with diced onion, sour cream and guacamole.
Serve right in frying pan.
