These are the "Real" Nachos I used to get in Juarez, Mexico. Now that they have been so over "Americanized" I love the old style.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces refried beans (Or you can make your own, like I do)
  • 11 ounces jalapenos packed in oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag tortilla chips (not sure on size... 1 bag, or you can make your own, like I do)
  • 2 cups four-cheese Mexican blend cheese (grated)


  1. Warm your re-fried beans on the stove over medium heat until spooning is easy.
  2. Lay out Tortilla chips on a baking sheet so they do not over-lap.
  3. Top each Chip with a spoonful of re-fried beans, large pinch of grated cheese and one slice of jalapeno, (you can substitute black olives if you like).
  4. Bake entire sheet for 10 - 15 minutes or until cheese melts, do not over cook as the chips will become soggy.
  5. Use a spatula to plate and serve warm.
