My family is a football family.  On Sunday you will find us smack in front of the TV watching football - GO BEARS!  There is nothing better than football and ‘snackie’ things.  I love this recipe because it is so easy to throw together and tastes wonderful!  Even if you’re not a football fan you can still enjoy these delicious nachos - we won’t judge you.  You can top these nachos with any of your favorite toppings to create a snack that is perfect just for you.  ENJOY!




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Arrange a layer of tortilla chips along the bottom of a large baking dish.  Spread the refried beans over the chips.
  3. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of the chips and beans.  Evenly spread the onions over the cheese.
  4. Top with jalapeño peppers (if using) and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Remove from oven and top with any of the optional toppings - sour cream, guacamole, salsa and cilantro.

I usually make this recipe in a shallow casserole dish.  While you can microwave your nachos, I prefer them ‘crispy’ and therefore bake them in the oven.

I had made a batch of nachos as a snack for my husband.  I had just taken it out of the oven when I received a phone call.  15 minutes later after I got off my call I came into the kitchen to see an empty pan - which is why you don’t see a picture of the nachos in the casserole dish.  Unfortunately my husband ate the nachos before I could get a picture so I threw together just a few so you could see them.  I let him off the hook this time since he usually hears “DON’T TOUCH THAT UNTIL I TAKE A PICTURE!” all the while looking at the yummy food at meal times!
