Loaded Nachos with Avocado Ranch Chopped Kit Recipe

Here’s the great thing about nachos: you can top them with whatever add-ons you want. And, if you were to ask us (let’s just assume you are), our Avocado Ranch Chopped Salad Kit seems to check off all the right boxes in terms of things you would absolutely want on nachos, such as chopped romaine, cabbage, carrots, crisp corn, green onions, a hint of cilantro, and robust flavor from a blend of taco-seasoned cheese. And let’s not forget the star of the show: our creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing drizzled on top. All of these ingredients are a perfect match to classic nacho toppings like taco-seasoned ground beef, pickled jalapenos, and, of course, more fresh cheese and diced avocado.


  • 1 Taylor Farms Avocado Ranch Chopped Salad Kit
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 large bag tortilla chips
  • 4 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 cup pickled jalapeños
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425º and line a large baking sheet with foil. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes, then add ground beef and cook until no longer pink, about 6 minutes more. Drain fat.
  2. Add garlic and taco seasoning and season with salt. Cook until meat is well browned and slightly crispy, about 5 minutes more. 
  3. Place half the tortilla chips on the baking sheet and top with beef mixture and half the cheese. Repeat one more layer.
  4. Bake until cheese is bubbly and melted, about 15 minutes.
  5. In a mixing bowl, toss the Taylor Farms Avocado Ranch Chopped Salad Kit with half of the dressing and half of the toppings.
  6. Remove the nachos from the oven and immediately top with pickled jalapenos, tomato, avocado, green onions, cilantro, and remaining chopped kit toppings. Drizzle with the remaining chopped kit dressing, and enjoy!

The Humble Avocado: Boldly Exploring New Culinary Frontiers 

If you’re anything like us, you’re constantly looking for new and exciting ways to enjoy avocados—the most delightful fruit that doesn’t seem like a fruit at all. Looking for some new ideas yourself? Consider trying some (or all) of these! 

  • Avocado Pasta Sauce: Here’s an excellent way to change things up from a classic marinara. Blend ripe avocados with garlic, fresh basil, olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt for a rich, decadent, and creamy pasta sauce. 
  • Avocado Ice Cream: Yes, you read that right. Create a mind-blowing, dairy-free ice cream by blending avocados with coconut milk, honey, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Freeze the mixture until firm, then serve to yourself and your likely apprehensive friends, family, or guests. One bite, and they’ll understand. 
  • Avocado Chocolate Mousse: Yep, another dessert idea! Melt dark chocolate and combine it with pureed avocados, honey, and a touch of vanilla extract for a silky, healthier alternative to a traditional chocolate mousse.
  • Avocado Pickles: Technically, you can pickle anything, so why not avocados? Slice up some avocados, then pickle them in a solution of vinegar, salt, sugar, and spices of your choice. These zesty avocado pickles add an unusual twist to sandwiches, salads, or as a stand-alone snack.
  • Avocado Smoothie Bowl: Blend avocados with Greek yogurt, honey, and a splash of almond milk until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and top with fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds for a nutrient-packed breakfast.
