This plate of nachos is very satisfying and craveable. I can eat them once a week. You can add whatever toppings you like, but this is our favorite. Also good topped with sliced pepperoncini or diced jalapeno.

  • Combine refried beans and salsa in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until blended and heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Arrange tortilla chips on the baking sheet. Spoon refried bean mixture over chips. Sprinkle pepper Jack cheese, green bell pepper, and onion on top.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with lettuce and olives.

Cook's Notes:

If we don't have a can of salsa, my husband (recipe creator) will use some of the juice of a jar of pepperoncini or jalapenos.

You can try these with meat too. They are great with grilled chicken.

Great recipe! Tasty and satisfying. Serves 5 or 6, instead of the 4 mentioned. Found in markets since you wrote recipe various products with jalapenos (cheese, corn chips), so had option of using regular salsa and omitting separate jalapenos. Am using sour cream or avocado as garnish. Another comment noted that most canned refried beans are NOT vegetarian. So can use home made refried, or plain canned red beans. Read More

Loved these but I have a couple of things to say here. I used jalapeno in place of the bell but that is the only change I made. I personally just felt it was the right call. I am in no way a vegetarian but feel it necessary to point out that most all of the refried beans you buy in the store are made with lard. Again, I have no issues eating lard but it is not vegetarian. You'd need to buy special beans or make your own if you are a vegetarian. These were good and I will most definitely make them again. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Really yummy, thank you! I mixed some taco seasoning into the refried beans and added a little water when heating it over the stove to smooth it out. I appreciate the idea as I wanted to make vegetarian nachos for my family and I can add or subtract whatever I like. Read More

made it as is - only two of us so had a lot of waste. Will apportion it better next time. Too much of the beans. Really good. I added some salsa on top of mine. Read More

Love this recipe. We swapped out the salsa with salsa con queso and it was amazing (idea of the lovely K) we will probably make that a standard with this meal... only downside is that we ate so much we ruined our dinner appetite Read More
