SAVORY NACHO “BITES” - 8NEWS - WRIC | News Where You Live


Posted: Updated:


45 bite-size nachos


  • 3 (1.9-ounce) packages thawed frozen baked mini filo shells
  • About 8 to 12 ounces ground beef or uncooked ground chicken or turkey
  • About 1 to 2 cups canned or favorite recipe refried beans
  • Taco seasoning to taste
  • Finely shredded taco-cheese blend as desired
  • Mild or medium or hot-spiced tomato-base salsa as desired
  • Sour cream or reduced-fat sour cream for garnish as desired
  • Sprigs of cilantro as desired for garnish


Arrange filo shells on an ungreased baking sheet and set aside.


In a medium heavy skillet lightly coated with non-caloric vegetable cooking spray, sauté ground beef or chicken or turkey over moderate heat, until well browned.  Drain off any excess fat and set aside.


In order, fill filo shells with a bit of refried beans and browned ground beef or chicken or turkey.  Sprinkle each lightly with taco seasoning and then top each with a bit of cheese.  Bake in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for about 7 to 8 minutes or until nachos are heated through and cheese is melted.  Top each with a dollop of salsa and then a dollop of sour cream.


To serve, arrange hot filled filo shells on a serving plate or tray and garnish with sprigs of fresh cilantro.  Serve immediately.


Note: May prepare nachos in advance to just before baking directions.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake and serve.  Add salsa and sour cream after baking nachos.
