These nachos can be served as a meal, but all the good stuff makes for a great appetizer or snack while watching a game or a quick lunch for your family and friends. Better plan on making two plates of these, they're really good! Serve with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.

Yummy! I took some suggestions from the previous reviewers: I added taco seasoning to the ground beef (using Taco Seasoning recipe from this site). I spread the tortilla chips onto a cookie sheet, and baked for about 10 minutes at 350 to make them crispy. Then I just added the toppings onto that. Popped the pan back into the oven until the cheese melted, and it was done. I did not heat the refried beans first though, I wish I had, they were difficult to spread, so I just ended up plopping spoonfuls onto the chips.

Everyone enjoyed these at our Sunday night card party. I baked chips in oven for about 6-8 minutes, cooked meat with Taco seasoning as others did. I melted a 3 ounce brick of cream cheese with the beans for ease of spreading. Then topped everything with sour cream, guacamole, chopped Roma toms, minced green onions, and sliced black olives. Messy, but yummy! Thanks Charlie.

I heated my beans before putting the mixture on the chips. It helped to make it a little easier to spread. I also placed my chips in the oven before I added the ingredients to make them crispier. Once assembled I placed them back in the oven as opposed to the microwave. Great recipe!
