  1. Lime and cilantro drizzle - place avocado oil, water, green onion, 1/2 cup of the cilantro, garlic, salt, lime juice and sour cream or yogurt in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Place in sealed container if refrigerator to allow flavours to blend.
  2. In a large skillet heat a small amount of olive or avocado oil - add ground meat and cook, stirring and breaking up as it browns. Once browned, drain, return to pan.
  3. Add diced onion, sweet pepper, ancho peppers and seasonings, cook until onion and pepper are starting to soften.
  4. Add remaining cilantro and pico de gallo, simmer for about 5 minutes to allow flavours to blend.
  5. On a foil lined cooking sheet, spread a layer of nachos, then some of the ground beef mixture, then cheese. Repeat layers as needed/desired.
  6. Place in a 350 oven until cheese melts and is bubbly.
  7. Drizzle with the lime cilantro mixture - and get out of the way...
