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

How to Make Late Night Nachos


  1. Preheat oven to 350* F.
  2. Prepare ground beef with taco seasoning. (I like to add a little onion, and jalapeno, but it's not necessary).
  3. In a bowl, combine chili and the two cans of beans.
  4. In a large glass pan spread out bean mixture.
  5. Top with the browned meat.
  6. On top of meat and bean layers, glop on and spread out the nacho cheese.
  7. Then add a shredded cheese layer.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 15-30 minutes. Until cheese is bubbly.
  9. Remove from oven and serve over chips. Family can add as many or as few toppings as they choose.
