Delicious Nachos

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by packeyes

Great quick snack and very delicious. My DH and I will often have these for lunches on weekends or when I just don't feel like cooking. I never measure what I'm putting on this; I just put what looks right - so my measurements are estimates. Very easy to adjust to individual tastes - for example I don't like tomatoes and my DH doesn't like black olives so those two items get put on separate halves of the nachos.

What a wonderful flavor sensation with these nachos - easy to make & very tasty. Will definitely make these for DH.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 -15 tortilla chips
  • 2 tablespoons refried beans (or black beans)
  • 1 cup cheese (cheddar or Mexican mix, whatever you have around)
  • 12-1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
  • 12 cup salsa (I use Salsa)
  • 12 avocado, chopped (or mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon black olives, chopped (or sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon tomatoes, chopped


  1. Spread the chips evenly on a plate.
  2. Spread the beans on top of the chips. If you use refried beans, put little globs of them on the chips around the plate - these don't spread easily.
  3. Cover with the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped jalapenos over the cheese.
  5. Microwave for 1 minute or until all the cheese is melted.
  6. Spread the salsa over the nachos(try not to get too watery of salsa b/c that will make your chips watery).
  7. Spread the sour cream over the salsa.
  8. Spread the avocado, black olives, and tomatoes over the sourcream.
  9. Enjoy! We usually end up making a second plate.
