Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Make the tortilla shells: Cut each tortilla into a 6-inch square. Place a 3-inch metal ring, such as a cookie cutter, at the center of a tortilla and fold up the ends on either side of the ring opening, then clamp together with a small paper clip. Place the tortilla in a medium metal bowl so the unclamped ends fold up along the sides of the bowl. Transfer the bowl with the tortilla to the oven and bake for 5 minutes, until lightly browned and crunchy. Remove from the oven and let cool until safe to handle, then remove the paper clip and ring. Repeat with the remaining tortilla squares.
  3. Make the meat filling: Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the ground beef and cook until the meat is browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Drain any excess liquid from the pan.
  4. Add the ancho chile powder, cumin, coriander, paprika, black pepper, cornstarch, salt, and orange zest and stir to combine, then use a whisk to mash the beef in the pan to break up any large pieces. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside until ready to assemble the nacos.
  5. Make the cheese sauce: Dice the cheese into 1-inch cubes, then add to a medium saucepan with the diced tomatoes and water. Warm over low heat until the cheese cubes have fully melted and the tomatoes are incorporated, about 5 minutes.
  6. Assemble the nacos: Add ¼ cup of tortilla chips to a naco shell, followed by ½ cup of the meat filling, ¼ cup shredded lettuce, 2 tablespoons guacamole, 2 tablespoons diced tomatoes, 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeños, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and ¼ cup cheese sauce. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 4 nacos total.
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
