This simple Black Bean and Beef Nachos will size up or size down depending on how many mouths you have to feed. It's a great party recipe for people to nibble at and come back to; but don't be surprised if you find people lingering around these nachos! The browned beef is a wonderful medium for carrying all of the earthy and salty tones from the spices and beans. Of course no nacho recipe would be complete without complementary avocado, sour cream and a sprinkling of cheese. Dig in!
