I made a dozen tonight to go with my fajita. I keep them simple. I use the round chips, top them with retried beans, cheddar cheese, and slice of jalapeños, zap them in the microwave and I'm done.

Do you make them at home? Recipe?

We do that one but sometimes add taco meat and sour cream.

Made some the other night with leftover brisket. Have a Mex place that I get the chips and salsa from. Add black beans, cheese, avocado, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and beer.

I was taught how to make them in the 60's by Senora Fierra. She had no English and I was just learning Espanol.

Quarter a corn tortilla and drop it into hot grease. She used lard and I now use Olive oil. When it gets semi hard, remove it and place on a a paper towel. Put a spoonful of refried beans on the chip. In those days pinto's had to be mashed after cooking. Add a little bit of sharp shredded cheddar cheese over the beans. I now top with a slice of jalapeno. Put them on a cookie pan (She used her cast iron skillet) and heat the whole works in the oven.

Remove when the cheese is melted and before the chip scorches. It works a little better if you heat the beans first. I can only eat about 2 dozen of them.

I remember some of those old deep fried corn tortillas. The were great but loaded with calories.

Bill, they still are I guess. But, I now have been civilized and use olive oil.

But, I can't enjoy nachos at restaurants of movie theaters. Even the "Mexican" eateries have civilized them with lettuce, tomato, HB meat and sour cream..

if you love nachos, try this...

put a layer of fine chopped fresh onion on the chips and then cover with equal parts shredded American, Colby, and Cheddar. carefully broil till melted cheese gets some dark spots... blend of cheeses is bliss.

You're fired. You have to have jalapeños on there.

Tab of butter in a pan and sweat down some onions. After onion ins cooked add left over pulled pork and heat till meat is warmed through. Arrange chips, spread some refried beans on them (I like refried black beans best) add the meat/onion mix sprinkle with cheese and serve with hot sauce and jalapenos. I would like sour cream too but didn't have any.
