I love beef fajitas and I love nachos. I took an older recipe from the archives that used steak for a steak fajita feel. I have always disliked how the steak falls off of the chips so easily though and decided...you know what...I'm using ground beef. I also diced the bell peppers and onion instead of slicing them into strips. These changes made the nachos so much easier to eat and I appreciated that so freaking much. I kept it simple and topped mine with just sour cream, but jalapenos, pico de gallo, and guacamole would all be awesome on top too.
