Soft Nachos

One of my favorites on a chilly day! This recipe is for one or two people depending on how hungry you are and which size tortillas you use.

What you need:

  • 2 6″ Tortillas (home-style or fajita size)
  • Refried beans
  • Grated Mexican cheese blend

What to do:

  1. Preheat your favorite cast-iron fry pan or griddle over medium-low/low heat.
  2. Precook beans in microwave 1-3 minutes, just to warm and soft.
  3. While beans are warming up, heat tortillas 1-3 minutes each side; do *not* brown or overcook; they should be warm and soft.
  4. Remove from heat and place on dish or cutting board.
  5. Spread one tortilla with a thin layer of refried beans.
  6. Top beans with desired amount of grated cheese.
  7. Place second tortilla on top of cheese and return to pan.
  8. Heat on each side 1-3 minutes, turning carefully so that cheese doesn’t escape.
  9. When cheese has melted, remove from heat, placing a plate.
  10. Using a pizza cutter or very sharp knife, cut into ‘pie pieces’, and serve with your favorite salsa or dip.


Try different refries… black beans, kidney beans, with or without chopped jalapenos

Try different cheeses… mild, medium or sharp cheddar, Co-Jack or Cheddar Jack, Mexican 4-Cheese Blend

Try different dips… picante, salsa, guacamole, green sauce

This is a fun recipe you can customize to your own personal tastes. Enjoy!
