Ground Axis (Venison) Nachos

This certainly can be made with any ground meat. But if you're using venison, keep in mind that it may be very lean and will require the addition of a little cooking oil when browning.

You will need:
1 pound of ground venison
1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
1 can green chili sauce (found in the ethnic isle of most stores, we used Old El Paso brand)
1 bunch green onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
1 lime
1 or 2 fresh tomatoes, cubed
1 avocado, cubed
1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese
1 bag tortilla chips

Brown the ground meat with the olive oil until pink is gone then add the crushed garlic and brown for a few more minutes.
Turn down the heat to simmer and pour the green chili sauce over the meat mixture, stir. (This ingredient creates that yummy, mouth-watering taste)
Place some tortilla chips on a large platter then pour the meat mixture over-top.
Cut the lime in half and squeeze over the meat mixture.
Add the shredded cheese immediately if you want it to melt a little bit.
Now add your fresh ingredients; green onion, tomatoes and avocado.
Optional: squeeze the other lime half over the nachos for extra lime flavor.
Serve and enjoy!
