Nacho Cheese Ingredients:

  • 2 lb. box original Velveeta cheese (or buy a large can of nacho cheese)
  • 1 cup mild La Victoria taco sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • milk for thinning

Other Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. ground beef cooked and seasoned
  • 16 oz. jar salsa
  • 4 tomatoes chopped
  • 16 oz. jar jalapeno slices
  • 2 bunches of green onions sliced
  • 16 oz. sour cream
  • 3 small cans of sliced black olives
  • 30 oz. black beans drained (two 15-oz. cans)
  • 2 large bags of tortilla chips

Guacamole Ingredients:

  • 5 avocados 1
  • ΒΌ cup sour cream
  • 1 lime
  • salt to tase


  • Cube the velveeta, put in slow cooker with 1 cup of sour cream, and 1 cup of taco sauce. Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stir often. Add milk to thin. You don't want the cheese to be gloppy. I kept the cheese on high during the party, so the cheese would stay thinned out, stir often, and keep adding milk if the cheese thickens.
  • Guacamole directions:
  • Take 4 to 5 avocados, and mash with a fork and add 1/4 cup sour cream, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and a dash of salt, mix lightly.
  • Assemble Nacho Bar:
  • Put the cooked and seasoned ground beef in a small slow cooker on low, or a pan with a lid works fine. Put all your toppings in little dishes (I got mine at the dollar store, they came with lids). Put the chips in a big bowl. I got the white paper nacho trays from a restaurant supply store (Cash and Carry), but you can get them at Costco too. Invite all your friends over for the big game, I think they will be impressed!
  • Recipe can be doubled if you're expecting more people
