What's on your Nachos?

A typical nachos from a Mexican restaurant contains a lot of toppings. The more toppings, the more expensive it is. Have you ever wondered what would be on your nachos if those restaurants just let you choose the toppings that you would personally like?

I've tried different kinds of nachos and there hasn't been one restaurant the sells my so called "dream nachos". It doesn't contains a lot of ingredients nor the toppings i want are very pricey. I do not know why i haven't found one yet the ingredients i used are found in a regular supermarket.

Just like any other dish, if you want it your way, you have to make it yourself. My "dream nachos" contain only four toppings!

Ground Beef
Honey-cured Bacon
Button Mushroom
Melted Cheese
Tortilla Chips

I won't give the exact quantity of each ingredient i used because everything is up to you! Also, there won't be a step by step tutorial on how to make this because all you need to do is cooked everything that needs to be cooked and put it all on top of your tortilla chips. Although you have to be careful, combining all the ingredients i stated above may have a tendency to get VERY salty. As in crazy salty. So here are some tips on how you should cook all of those to make the saltiness just right.

1. Do not use any oil while cooking the honey-cured bacon. It's called rendering, where you allow the oil from the bacon to come out while heating.
2. Use the oil from the bacon to cook the ground beef. No need for seasoning like salt and pepper. Believe me, it's tasty enough. After the cooking's done, drain the excess liquid from the beef.
3. Heat the mushroom in the microwave. You don't want to add unnecessary flavors by sauteing it.
4. While melting your cheese, try to add water until you get the desired consistency and taste.

It's as simple as that. In the end, my "dream nachos" came out perfectly. How about you? What's on your nachos?
