When I lived in the USA the discovery of a nacho salad was a revelation. I fell in love. Then, when I had a family I soon learnt that you can pretty much please everyone with a flexible version of Nacho Salad: add cheese, leave it out, more corn chips, more beef, less onion, less chilli, no black olives for me, mum. It’s all do-able.
The beef mixture can also be used as a filling for quesadillas or as a topping for traditional nachos.
