In a large, lightly greased skillet set on medium, break up and brown meat, cooking almost all the way through. When almost fully cooked, add taco seasoning pack and 2 tbsp water and mix well. Turn off heat and set aside.
In a 9-10 inch cast iron skillet (or large sheet tray lined with parchment), pile in chips really high on sides, leaving a shallow “well” in the middle. Spoon in refried beans in well and gently spread out a little.
Then, add cooked ground beef on top. Top with cheese and put under broiler. Let bake for 7-10 minutes or util the beans are hot all the way through.
Take out and serve hot!
Either add your choice of toppings on top of hot nachos or set the toppings out communal style and let everyone serve themselves.
***NOTE*** if using a sheet tray, lay everything flat and spoon pre heated beans on, then layer with meat and cheese
