nachos recipe

UPDATED April 18th, 2018

When was the last time you had really good nachos? I’m not talking about the kind with the orange cheese that comes in a can that is served in movie theaters or little league baseball games. I’m talking about the kind that are made at home with crisp corn tortilla chips, refried beans, jack cheese, and carne asada or chorizo…served with salsa and guacamole or slathered in sour cream. Mmmmmm. The kind of nachos recipe I dream about.

The truth is we rarely make them at home and I’m not sure why. So let me pose my question again….When was the last time you had really good nachos? Do you need a justifiable excuse to indulge? Or does it seem like too much work for a plate of nachos? I usually make this nachos recipe with leftover ingredients from my fridge or when I’m going to have a party.
