"My husband wanted to find chips tasting like those made at restaurants. Baking them is the key. These nachos are his claim to fame as a cook and they're delicious! I love them as a quick appetizer or late night snack! Serve with sliced jalapenos and your favorite hot sauce."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x9 inch baking dish.
  2. Place the chicken on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a paper towel, and place in a microwave oven. Cook on high power until the chicken is no longer pink and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Cool, and use a knife to shred the chicken. Set aside.
  3. Place the refried beans in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until thoroughly heated.
  4. Layer half the chips, 1/2 cup cheese, and green onions on the bottom of prepared baking dish. Spoon the refried beans over the chip mixture. Sprinkle with another 1/2 cup cheese, and spread with the sour cream. Arrange the shredded chicken over the sour cream layer. Top with the remaining chips and 1/2 cup cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese melts throughout, 15 to 18 minutes.

I couldn't find a recipe quite like what I was looking for, so I modified this one. I cooked 1 lb of ground beef with taco seasoning, then layered it in a 9x13 pan with tortilla chips, cheese, p...

My family loved this recipe! I did omit the sour cream and served it on the side with guacamole. This one is a keeper.

These are very good. I made it more of a casserole though. I crushed the tortilla chips up a bit. I have made this twice once without the sour cream and once with. I & my family liked it much be...

I was looking for something to make for a quick lunch and came across this recipe. I had to make some changes based on ingredients at hand. We used sharp cheddar instead of pepper jack, white ...
