Double Protein Nachos

Maybe I should have called this blog nachos, brownies, and beer. We  eat them once a week and you can make them in so many different ways so they never get boring. Here is our double protein nachos. They are not only topped with season beef, but also a black bean sauce flavored with the sweet and spicy essence of jalapeno pepper jelly.
