These are great as part of a Saturday or Sunday football game buffet. They go great with cold beer. Sometimes I even add ground beef after the bean dip, but before the cheese. And there are other times when we make these as a meal instead of just a snack.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 bag tortilla chips (round works best for these)
  • 1 can Frito-Lay bean dip
  • shredded cheddar cheese (, REAL nachos use real cheese, not cheese sauce!)
  • jalapeno, sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (makes clean-up easier, throw away the foil instead of scrubbing cheese off the cookie sheet).
  3. Spread bean dip on each tortilla chip.
  4. Place each chip onto the cookie sheet until the cookie sheet is full.
  5. Cover the chips with shredded cheese and jalapeno slices.
  6. Place under the broiler until cheese melts.

I served these at our Family Fun Night. The perfect bean nacho recipe in my opinion. I made about half with jalapenos and half without. Easy to put together. This was sure a crowd pleaser. Just had to be careful who you stood next to when we started playing Twister--if you know what I mean. Thanks Mark!!

Very close to the restaurant Nachos I first had 30 years ago. Try warm refried beans first, then the meat (optional), then the cheese. After melting the cheese, add a slice of jalapeno, then a smalll dollop of sour cream and/or a small dollop of guacamole. Perfecto!
