Day 6: Nachos, Texas-Style
Homesick Texan was so persuasive about dressing each individual nacho that I just had to try it for myself. While my nachos weren't quite as spare as hers, each bite was so very satisfying. It's a little more work, yes. Think of them as Tex-Mex crostinis. :P Also, I think because each bite was so tasty, I ate less nachos than I normally would because I was satisfied that much sooner.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Smear a bit of refried beans on as many tortilla chips as you'd like. Top with a few sprinkles of cheddar cheese. Then top each chip with a jalapeno.
Bake for about 5 minutes or so until the cheese melts. Add a dollop of salsa on top.

1 year ago today, I fell in love with the color of my blood orange grapefruit juice. Everyone else fell in love with my Hello Kitty juicer. :)
