Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 large bag white corn tortilla chips
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced crosswise, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 can chili, or your favorite chili recipe
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
Directions

Have all the prepped ingredients easily accessible to assemble nachos.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small saucepan over low heat, cook refried beans until they are loose enough to spoon onto nachos. On a large ovenproof platter, spread out a layer of tortilla chips and quickly put a teaspoon of hot refried beans on each chip. Working quickly, sprinkle with some onions, jack cheese, and jalapeno slices. Spoon on chili and top that with Cheddar. Repeat this layering process until ingredients are used up. Save some of the jalapeno slices for garnish. Place platter in the oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a trivet or heatproof surface. Top nachos with sour cream, green onions, diced tomato and jalapeno slices and serve hot.

Hi everyone, I've made these nachos many times since paula introduced them a couple of years ago. I've always thought of writing a review,but never made an effort to do it. well here it goes.As a latina,I've made many nacho recipes.I entertain lots.And let me tell you,Ms. Paula Deans are the bomb! she uses two types of beans that I never thought would taste good together,but they do!the part of the recipe that asks for refried beans,I use homemade beans that I make,or buy from small taco shops.they're delicious,and make the recipe even better! I don't like the can tasting refried beans, but the chili beans are fine.ok, there ya go I wrote a review for her outstanding nachos that I've been wanting to do for a long time.Adios! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make these nachos every year during football season and they are always a huge hit! The only thing that I do differently is sometimes I do not add the jalapenos because some people do not like them (for some odd reason. These are definitely the best nachos ever!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Go Paula! My boys requested this for a football party and now want it for Christmas. Good snacking food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great tasting nachos. The only drawback is they have to be eaten right away. Not that great after 30 minutes... item not reviewed by moderator and published
wonderful, they taste like the ones i make at home except easier and healthier because i opted for the baked chips inseted of my own fried chips. i cant get enough of this tasty yet simple receipe. comes to show great food does not need to have a lot of ingredients or complicated to be great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this last night as an appetizer. I used half of everything since i was only making it for 2 people and all the other reviews said it was alot of food. I am THE WORST cook. I could burn water, honestly. BUT my bf said they were so good they tasted like they should've been served at a restaurant. These nachos get 5 stars for boosting my ego :] item not reviewed by moderator and published
to the person who said " If you need Paula's guidance in building nachos, then you need to be watching How To Boil Water."...well, lol that was a little harsh, I mean you looked at the recipe ...Anyhow, I am a wonderful cook, but am always interested in looking at "different" ways and methods of cooking...These were very tasty...I chose to just make up a spicy ground beef instead of the chili, since I used the refried beans, but other than that..YUM! TY Paula, you are truly a genuine, nice, woman who is a joy to watch!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great to eat, a lot of work to get to the point to eat them!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

My BH found this recipe a couple of years ago and we have been enjoying it on a regular basis. This is very quick and easy. It is also tweekable.

I Brought This Macho Nachos To A Party And Everyone LOVED IT item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing restaurant style dish. I just left mine in the pan I stuck it in the oven in. I got about two layers worth. I also added in some ground beef in addition to the chilli because we're big meat eaters. Served it at a get together we had for the NFL draft and had no leftovers the next day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have used beef and shredded chicken. Very easy and fun to build to suit for everyone. I reccommend cooking a little longer so the bottom nachos have texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Easy to make, perfect amount for appetizers or a meal to share and very filling! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is good but the chips get soggy no matter what you do when working with ground beef. Cook some chicken, slice & use instead of taco meat & refried beans... The nacho chips stay crisp because there is less moisture. Chicken is healthier as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We have tried this receipe and it was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was soooo yummy! Defintately a keeper! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you have any leftover you can put it into a plastic container and ref.The next day you can mirowave and heat it up. The chips will be like soft and will caputure the favor of the onions and spices.I added olives to mine and those favors were great. It is a real winner at my house the first day or as leftovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really good but it was alot of topping for the chips to carry. My family were in shock over the huge tray of nachos I made. I also combined mashed pinto beans leftover with a can of refried beans to liven up the flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
