Crockpot Nachos

1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 can refried beans
1 can red kidney beans, undrained
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder
tortilla chips
Mexican 4 cheese salsa con queso
Topping of your choice (I used finely diced onions, sour cream and lettuce, we don't like tomatoes here at home lol)

My crockpot can be used on the stovetop to cook meat etc in, so I browned the ground beef, then drained out the grease. Placed it back on the crockpot base and added the refried beans, kidney beans, tomato paste, taco seasoning, water, salt and pepper and garlic powder.

Cook on high for 2-3 hours.

Warm up the salsa con queso, remember to pour it into a microwave safe container and not use the glass jar it comes in.
