Super Bowl Nachos

I could not care less about sports. That being said, Super Bowl snacks are delightful. Chicken wings, spinach dip, fried mozzarella sticks, chips and salsa- I love them all. But nachos are especially delicious. I must note that these are not just any nachos, they are nachos that befit the name of Super Bowl Nachos. They are topped with a delicious, spicy ground beef mixture, topped with loads of cheese, and sprinkled with diced tomatoes and avocados. I add a little bit of crisp romaine in an attempt to be healthyish, but it does actually provide a nice contrast to the spicy beef mixture. I place lime wedges alongside the nachos so everyone can drizzle a refreshing bit of lime juice onto their individual serving of nachos.
