Thai Nachos

Summer vacation is right around the corner, which means food truck season will be soon be in full swing. We have quite a food truck contingent where I live, and I do my best to visit each and every one of them during the summer. But I have a definite favorite–Umami Mobile Asian Eatery. Their Thai Nachos are incredible.

Of course, I can’t afford to eat there every time I crave Thai Nachos (three-four times a week). Plus, I don’t want to be some sort of crazy food truck stalker. So I had to recreate their Thai Nachos at home. Umami uses pork for their nachos, but when I tried to make it myself, it wasn’t quite right. So I decided to try a beef version and it was fantastic! My family agreed. Even my picky eater, who normally doesn’t touch ground beef, goes back for seconds.

You can control the heat by adding more or less red pepper flakes, but don’t skip on any of the toppings. As an added bonus, this is a really easy meal to put together, and my family devours it. I never have a scrap of leftovers when I make this for dinner.
