First off let me say I’m not a food blogger. If you are new here I’m all about giving an honest opinion to help you all out.

I share ways to save money from everything to food to your animals. I got a Ninja Foodi last year for Christmas and have been sharing what I learn about it here with my readers.

This time I used frozen beef because you can do that with the Ninja! Did you see how you can put a whole chicken frozen in? If you do put it in frozen it takes a lot longer. This is noted in the recipe below.

Just break up your meat good after cooking in the pressure cooker.

I put a spin on the traditional taco recipe. My favorite taco seasoning to use is Taco bell. Otherwise I’ll make my own here.

You could add in diced green chilies or even tamed jalapenos but my girls are not fans of spicy things so I omitted it. Using fresh mozzarella is always tastier BUT shredded mozzarella works just fine for these nachos as well.

I always put a bowl of chips out at the table with it, for extra dipping. No forks really needed.

I hope you enjoy this and if you do let me know in the comments.

Another classic twist you need to try in the Ninja Foodi is the Meatloaf recipe I shared here.
