How to Make A Tex Mex Treat - Nachos

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    Arrange a layer of tortilla chips along the bottom of a wide, shallow baking pan. The layer of tortilla chips can be a couple chips thick.

    Spread the refried beans over the chips (this is why you need extra thick chips, so they don't break when encountering the beans).

    Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of chips and beans and lastly sprinkle slices of jalapeño peppers over the cheese.
  2. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. 5 minutes in a convection oven.
  3. Serve with dollops of salsa, sour cream and guacamole, with chopped cilantro sprinkled on top.
