Aaron's Famous Vegetarian Nachos

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Combine refried beans and salsa in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until blended and heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Arrange tortilla chips on the baking sheet. Spoon refried bean mixture over chips. Sprinkle pepper Jack cheese, green bell pepper, and onion on top.
  4. 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.

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 s...

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.

I substituted chili with beans for the refried beans, added bacon crumbled up and topped with sour cream. Great recipe that is quick and easy. Thanks for sharing it.

Just made it for a late night meal as I had been craving something mexican lately. Honestly, it turned out amazing! Thank you so much for such a simple, satisfying dish!
