This is not an authentic restaurant-caliber nacho recipe by any means - I got it off a can of bean dip when I was in high school before the whole nacho craze really took off. To this day, I will still make a plate or 2 of them for us whilst watching tv, as we usually have most of the ingredients laying around. They are really flavorful and delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Smear about 1 tbs bean dip on one side of each tortilla chip, and place on a microwave safe plate. Do not stack.
  2. Spoon some salsa on the top of the beans.
  3. Place 1 pepper slice over the salsa and top with piece of cheese.
  4. Microwave on high for 1 or 2 minutes, until the cheese is just melted.
  5. It's such a stupid 'recipe', I know, but they are really good and very addicting!

Our favorite Mexican restaurant (that closed) used to make something like these. Spread beans on a chip, top with a slice of jalapeno, then load up with grated cojack or mild cheddar cheese. Always heat in the oven. It's gentler with the cheese.

We loved these nachos! I took suggestions from other reviewers and they turned out great! I preheated the beans, used shredded cheddar cheese (mixed with some pepper jack) and Tostitos Scoops. Thanks for sharing this quick, easy and tasty recipe, Steve! **Made for Spring PAC 2008**
