Tournament Time - Loaded Nachos

    1 pound ground beef
    1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
    3/4 cup water
    1 (18 ounce) package restaurant-style tortilla chips
    1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, or more to taste
    1 (15.5 ounce) can refried beans
    1 cup salsa
    1 cup sour cream, or more to taste
    1 (10 ounce) can pitted black olives, drained and chopped
    4 green onions, diced
    1 (4 ounce) can sliced jalapeno peppers, drained

Cook and stir ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until meat is crumbly and no longer pink, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water and simmer until beef mixture has thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.
    
Set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
    
Spread tortilla chips on the prepared baking sheet; top with Cheddar cheese and dot with refried beans and ground beef mixture.
    
Broil in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, watching carefully to prevent burning, 3 to 5 minutes.
    
Top nachos with salsa, sour cream, black olives, green onions, and jalapeno peppers.
