the best homemade nachos

Since I just seem to have no motivation to cook these days...  and even when I do get the urge, everything falls apart...  we have been having a lot of simple dinners lately.

Chili, Hot Dogs, Eggs, Nachos...

Fortunately we love nachos and these really are the best.

Yes, I said the best.  I know that is a very subjective word, but for us this is it.

A perfect meal, with every crispy chip full of flavorful meat, beans & veggies...

topped with a whole bunch of really good cheese...

and baked to perfection!

Of course this is best topped with sour cream and chopped avocados or homemade guacamole, but the basic sprinkling of salsa is what we end up having most of the time.

You really can't go wrong with homemade nachos...  top them with your favorite things and enjoy a great meal in minutes!

Sweet Anna's Homemade Nachos Recipe

tortilla chips (your favorite...  we like Kirkland Signature)
finely chopped onion
finely chopped jalapeños
finely chopped olives
black beans, rinsed and drained well
grilled chicken, chopped
cheddar cheese and/or pepper jack cheese, shredded
fresh salsa (your favorite kind!)

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.  Line a large baking sheet with foil and spread out the tortilla chips as evenly as possible in one layer.  Try not to let them pile up so that each chip gets it's own toppings.

Sprinkle the onion, jalapeños, olives, beans and chicken evenly over the chips.  Then top generously with shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.

Serve with salsa - of course - and sour cream, avocados or guacamole if you like them.  Enjoy!
