2 cshredded cheddar or any cheese you have
2 can(s)chili beans or leftover/canned chili
1 or 2 cleftover cooked and chopped or shredded meat: chicken, hamburger, meatloaf, pork-whatever (optional)
2 cshredded lettuce (optional)
3chopped green onions
1/2 csour cream
1/2 bunchfresh cilantro leaves, chopped
How to Make Dinner Nachos
- On large circular pizza pan, spread out the entire bag of tortilla chips. Pour the beans all over the chips and then the chopped meat. Sprinkle the cheese to mostly cover the chips. Bake in 400 degree oven until cheese melts and starts browning a little. Around 10-15 mins. (Make sure the beans are heated thru. I actually heat the beans prior to pouring them on the chips so I don't risk burning the cheese before they are hot enough.)
- When the pan is out of the oven, pour the salsa over the cheese, then sprinkle with the onions. If you choose to add the optional shredded lettuce, sprinkle that on now.
- Place the sour cream into a small Ziploc bag, release air before sealing. Snip the very tip of a corner in the bag and squeeze the sour cream out by spirals onto the platter of nachos. Garnish with cilantro.
