Nachos (Real Old Mexico Style)

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 15 mins

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.

Years ago we made Nachos like this. They were easy to make and taste so good. Thanks for reminding me. The jalapenos in oil really makes a difference. We just used cheddar cheese; that was before the grated blended Mexican cheese.
