Instant Nachos Recipe


Nachos are popular for snacks and while watching television; they’re easy to make, and oh so good. With the Mexican Meat Mix Module in the freezer, most of the work is already done, and great loaded nachos can be made in a matter of minutes. Almost everyone keeps a supply of canned refried beans, as well as a bag or two of tortilla chips on the pantry shelves, and now that grocery stores feature bags of already grated cheese, chances are good that there’s one in the fridge. Salsa, sour cream, and lettuce are most likely in that same fridge, so these Instant Nachos are only a few minutes away.

””
To make them extra special, add a scoop or two of freshly made guacamole; it can be put together in the few minutes that the nachos are in the oven. The only thing left to do will be to gather friends or family and get to the delightful task of eating.

8 Servings

8 cups tortilla chips
1 15 oz. can refried beans
2 cups Mexican meat mix from the Mexican Meat Mix Module
4 cups grated cheddar jack cheese
Sliced jalapenos (optional)

Garnishes:

Shredded Lettuce
Salsa
Guacamole
Chopped tomato
Sour cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.

  2. Place the tortilla chips on oven-proof plates (1 cup chips per person).

  3. Divide the refried beans among the chips.

  4. Top with the Mexican meat mix (about 1/4 cup per person).

  5. Sprinkle evenly with the cheese.

  6. Place the nachos in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven and garnish with lettuce, salsa, guacamole, tomato, and sour cream.
