This recipe came from eating some wonderful nachos in a restaurant in Dallas, TX years ago. I tried to copy them. These are a big hit and you can keep the ingredients on hand for a quick snack or meal. My daughter always wanted me to make these when someone spent the night.



On a cookie sheet, place round flat corn chips - as many as will fit on without overlapping. Take each chip and spread a thin layer of bean dip over the top of each chip. Mix broth into the chicken/turkey really well and then place approximately 1/2 teaspoon of chicken on top of the bean dip. Slice the cheese into 1/4 inch slices down either edge and then cut those slices so that they are approximately a square and place over the chicken on each nacho chip.

Preheat your oven broiler and then place the cookie sheet approximately 4 inches from the broiler element. Broil only long enough to melt the cheese. Remove cookie sheet from the oven and serve with jalapeno slices, salsa, sour cream, and/or guacamole - to each his own.

When I originally started making these, Old El Paso had refried beans with sausage. It made great bean dip all by itself, but I would use it on these nachos. I can't find that any more, but I suppose you could cook some sausage and mix it into the refried beans and use that instead. That, however, takes pre-planning, which is not usually the situation when I make these. The original Restaurant nachos had some shredded beef on them as one of the layers. I don't bother, but you could do that if you had some left over roast.

This recipe is quick and easy and makes a great snack. You only have to have three ingredients, but can add more if you want to get fancy. My family LOVES these things, and we make them all the time.



Spread a thin layer of refried beans on nacho chips, making sure not to press too hard or you will break your chips.

Top with cheese, broil until cheese is crispy, or soft; depending on how you like it.

You can top with a dab of sour cream, salsa, and/or black olives if desired.

My former son-in-law, Jess (who will always be my son) would deep fry the chips before making nachos, they were so good!

Nacho is my favorite food with beer. My brother bought cheese flavored chips. I'd like to upgrade it with salsa using these leftovers from last night's dinner.

Serves one person. Layer corn chips, heated chili, onion, tomato, cheddar cheese and sour cream. This was served in the corn chip bag at the 1982 World's Fair.

1 pkg cream cheese
1 can refried beans
1 jar of salsa
1 bag of shredded cheese
1 6X11 pan, or something approximate to that size


Spread cream cheese on bottom of pan, follow with beans. Dump salsa on the beans and then the shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Sometimes we add extra stuff, like a layer of hamburger or top it with black olives. Quick and easy and everyone always enjoys this.

Start with a layer of thin white tortilla chips that either are no-salt or low-salt. The thinner they are, the crispier they will get. Layer them up about 3 deep so that you have the base of a 10x15 jelley roll pan pretty well covered. Line the pan with foil for easy clean-up!

Heat a can of refried beans and dollop on the top.

If you want you can then add either taco-style ground beef, shredded beef, or taco-seasoned chicken.


Next layer we like to add the chopped green chiles that come in a can. Some people like canned or fresh jalepenos, anaheim chiles, etc. Whatever your heat-level likes.

Then cover with shredded cheese - cheddar, monterey jack, mexican white, or a mixture of all three.

I like to bake them in the oven so they heat through, but if your meat and beans are warm already you can put them under the broiler until the cheese starts to bubble.

After you remove them from the oven, add shredded lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, etc. and serve.

This is one of our favorite Friday night meals and you can vary the ingredients however you like. Enjoy!
