Late Night Nachos

Angie Hooper


I make these when my roommates and I are up late and don't feel like doing too much with food. This is simple and not too expensive, plus it's really tasty.

These should be called anytime nachos because you're going to want these all the time! The star is the layers of savory beans, taco meat, nacho cheese and shredded cheese. Once baked, it's ooey gooey deliciousness. Serve over your favorite tortilla chips with your favorite toppings and you have fantastic nachos. The Test Kitchen
