2 Meals in 1 - Southwestern Stir-Fry and Nachos

Okay, so this photo does not look as appetizing and delicious as it is!  We just had this for lunch and it was gone before I knew it!

2 lbs lean ground beef
2 packets of taco seasoning
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 large onions
1/4 cup water
steamed white rice
bag of Blue Corn/ Tortilla Chips
2 cups shredded cheese
Optional: sour cream, olives, salsa, lettuce, etc.

Brown ground beef in skillet and add 1 packet of seasoning and 1/2 of the other packet.  Lift out half of the ground beef, leaving most of the oil in the skillet.  Cut pepper and onions into strips.  Add to hot skillet with beef and stir-fry.  Add water and continue to stir fry.  Once the the veggies start to wilt, add the rest of the seasoning and stir-fry for a couple more minutes.  Combine the veggies and the rest of the beef together.

Meal #1 - Serve over steamed rice.

Meal #2 - Use Silpat or Flexipat to make the best nachos ever!!  Spread tortilla chips on Silpat then top with the beef/veggie mixture and sprinkle (or douse) with cheese.  Bake at 425 F for approx. 10 min. (until cheese is melted).  Garnish with your favorites!

We eat Meal #1 for dinner and save the rest for Meal #2 for lunch!
