Servings: 12 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1   can refried beans
1   large bag white corn tortilla chips
1   medium onion, chopped
1   can chili (recommended Hormel) or your favorite chili recipe
1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup green onion, chopped
1   tomato, diced
1   jalapeno sliced





Have all ingredients prepared and ready to assemble nachos.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan on low, heat refried beans until they are loose enough to spoon onto nachos.  On a large oven proof platter, spread out tortilla chips and quickly put a teaspoon of hot refried beans on each chip.  Working quickly, sprinkle with onions, Jack cheese, and jalapeno slices.  Spoon on chili and top that with Cheddar cheese. Repeat this layering process until ingredients are used up. Place chips in the oven at 350 degrees until cheese has melted.  Remove from oven and place on a trivet or heatproof surface.  Top nachos with sour cream, green onions, diced tomato and jalapeno slices and serve hot.

I saw Paula make it on her show only about 2 1/2 or 3 months or so ago. It looked good so I made it. My husband and I loved it so much that I have already made it 4 more times.

We thought this was very good! The only thing we did different was add hamburger to the recipe.
