By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 large bag white corn tortilla chips
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 1 can or homemade chili
  • 1 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1 sliced jalapeño


Have all ingredients prepared and ready to assemble nachos.

Pre-heat oven to 350 °F.

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 jalapeño 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 °F 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 jalapeño slices and serve hot.
