Nacho Mama's Nachos!

Yo' Mama' ain't got nothin' on these Fiesty and fun nachos! Why, do you ask? Well that is simple. Yo' Mama would probably use all the traditional stuff, cheese, chips, olives, maybe some beans and beef! Oh no, no, no, my friend! These are not your every day nachos! These nachos scream with flavor and in some respects aren't even nachos at all! They are nacho loaded fries! That's ok, ill give you a minute to mentally absorb the awesomeness that is going on in your mind right now...... finished? Perfect! Let's not waste any more time on this silly nonsense, now let's get down to business...Enjoy! 

1 bag frozen crinkly cut fries ( I like to use sweet potato fries but regular are just as good! ) 
1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/2 small onion ( Chopped small ) 
3 cloves garlic ( minced ) 
1 jalapeno ( Seeded & minced ) 
Taco Seasoning ( I prefer to make my own but those little packet things work too ) 
1 can beans ( use your favorite, black, red, pinto, re-fried... I like re-fried black beans personally! )
1 cup shredded cheese ( mexican blend ) 
2 tbsp. Cilantro ( Finely Chopped ) 
lime wedges 
hot sauce 
olives, jalapeno rings, tomato, avocado, salsa, sour cream, guacamole ( optional toppings ) 

Bake bag of fries as directed on packaging until crispy. While fries are baking, cook ground turkey in sautee pan with onion, garlic, jalapeno, and taco seasoning until browned and cooked through. 

Once fries are finished cooking remove from oven and place fries in a casserole dish. scatter beans and meat mixture on top of fries. Top with cheese and bake until cheese is melted. 

Remove from oven, sprinkle with cilantro, add toppings of your choice and mow down! Best served with some good Mexican Beer, some of your awesome college buddies, and that awesome Johnny Depp movie "Once upon a time in Mexico"
