High protein chips are cool and all, but the real start of the show in this nachos recipe is the beef and homemade taco seasoning. You’ll want to make this healthier taco meat in bulk to use for more than just nachos. Baked taquitos, tacos, enchiladas, empanadas—this meat is my go-to filling. 

The only recipe note worth mentioning here would be that Quest chips don’t handle heat very well.

So be sure to pop your nachos in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese and not any longer.
