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.
Day 6 Nachos, Texas-Style
Nachos, Texas-Style Adapted from Homesick Texan (Please read her very persuasive post on Texas-style nachos.) You'll need: Tortilla chips Refried beans Cheddar Cheese Jalapenos Salsa 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. Enjoy!

Everyone else fell in love with my Hello Kitty juicer. :)


  1. An excellent reason for dressing each chip - eating fewer!

  2. what do you mean when you say you'll need "nachos" as an ingredient? do you mean tortilla chips?

  3. Nikki,
    Yes, a good side effect. I eat way too much as it is.

    Oops! Thanks for pointing that out. I corrected it. :)
