The one drawback I find with restaurant nachos is that often the toppings are only on a small portion of the tortilla chips. This can make it awkward when sharing a plate with friends.  

Individual plates, served when ready to eat, allow everyone to enjoy the goodness of the toppings without the toppings making the tortilla chips soggy.

The first thing I did for this recipe was pour some olive oil into my Instant Pot and turn it to the Saute Less function for 10 minutes.

Then I added in a pound of extra lean ground beef.

While the beef was cooking I made sure to break it up into very small pieces for serving later.

Then I spread some nachos over individual serving plates.  This was to allow people to prepare their own nachos when they were ready to eat them.  That way the tortilla chips would not be soggy and the toppings cold.

When the meat had no pink remaining, I added in a tablespoon of taco mix to help absorb the grease.  Using extra lean ground beef also helps reduce this grease. The Saute Less Function was still on.  I kept it on until I was ready to use the Keep Warm Function.

Then I dumped in a cup of shredded Nacho Cheese Blend and a cup of chunky salsa.  

I stirred them right into the ground beef.  That way every spoonful would be loaded with cheese, salsa and beef.  

Next I spread another cup of chunky salsa on top of the beef mixture.  I did not stir.

Then I spread some more shredded nacho cheese blend on top of the salsa.  I did not stir.

Then I put the lid on the Instant Pot and left it on Warm so the cheese would melt.

Once the cheese was mostly melted it was ready to serve.  Keep the Instant Pot on the warm setting so people can serve themselves when they are ready to eat their nachos.

It is very easy to adjust the ingredients or toppings to suit your taste.  

Instant Pot Beef Nachos can be served as a meal or individual appetizers.  Just remember to eat immediately to avoid soggy tortilla chips!
