Not So Ordinary Nachos

**UPDATE** I think this is the third mclinky I have linked this to. I apoloqize if you've seen it before, but it's one of my favorite easy recipes for home or a crowd. Enjoy!

Super Awesome Nachos (TM)

Just kidding about the "TM", but they ARE super and awesome.

oh, and super easy.

Crockpot Nachos Supreme

1 brick o'velveeta cheese
1 lb taco meat (I use ground turkey), browned and seasoned with
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can Rotel (i use store brand)
1 can black beans (rinse very well)
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk

Cube cheese into crock pot. Add meat, tomatoes, beans. Cover and let heat until cheese really starts to melt. Stir in sour cream and milk, stir thoroughly. After completely melted, add another splash of milk if necessary. This is enough for a large crowd (I take it to work and school quite frequently). The milk thins it out just a bit, so it's not that super thick break the chip off burn to the side of the pot kind of Rotel. It also stretches it a bit further, as do the beans.
*Variation* If you are having a Halloween-themed food day at work, just add a few drops of food coloring until you get a grotesque shade of green, then put a sign on the crock pot calling it "Snot-chos," win the Golden Spoon Award for the day, become the stuff legends are made of.
