How to make it

  • **NOTE: If using a conventional oven instead of a microwave, preheat it to 350 degrees F.**
  • Spread the tortilla chips on 2 microwavable or ovenproof platters or large plates. Spread the beans on top of the chips and top with the ground beef. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  • Place 1 microwavable plate in the microwave and heat for 1 minute, or until the cheese has melted. Or place the ovenproof plate in the preheated oven and heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Place dollops of half of the guacamole, sour cream, onions, salsa, and jalapeno chile over the nachos.
  • Serve immediately, and repeat with the second plate of nachos.
  • Mash the salted pinto beans with a potato masher or puree in the blender.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the beans, stirring constantly, for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Combine the tomatoes, chiles, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a blender and blend till you have a chunky mixture. DO NOT PUREE UNTIL SMOOTH. Transfer to a bowl till you are ready to add to the nachos. If making ahead of time, chill.
  • Slice the avocados lengthwise in half and remove the pits. Using a spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl. Using a potato masher or a fork, mash the avocado, making it as chunky or smooth as you like. Add finely diced Serrano pepper and diced onion if you are using this in the recipe.
  • Season with the garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Chill till ready to use.
