  6. Add tomato sauce and cook the ground beef till all the water dries off.
  7. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  9. Layer half of the tortilla chips as the first layer.
  10. Layer half of the cooked ground beef as the second layer.
  11. Layer half of the salsa as the third layer. If you don't have salsa just ignore this step.
  12. Add 5-6 jalapeno slices.
  13. Sprinkle grated cheese over it.
  14. Repeat the layers and sprinkle cheese over the top.

You could make with just one layer of chips, beef, salsa and cheese.
Instead of ground beef, you could use diced chicken.
Vegetarians can add mixed beans instead of meat.
If you don't want your nachos to be spicy, don't use jalapenos.
