Instructions Checklist

  • Meanwhile, lay half the tortilla chips evenly in the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Spread half of bison mixture over chips. Pour 1/3 cup salsa over the meat, followed by half the cheese. Repeat layers with 1/3 cup more salsa and remaining meat and cheese. Bake until cheese melts and chips start to brown, about 6 minutes.

  • Serve nachos with lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, remaining 1/3 cup salsa, and the sour cream.
