A favorite of teenagers, nachos are also a great comfort food dish. In this recipe, the degree of spice depends upon the heat of the salsa. If you are heat averse, use a mild salsa. If you are a heat seeker, use a spicy one.
Makes about 4 cups (1 L)
1 can (14 oz/398 mL) refried beans
1 cup prepared tomato salsa
1 can (4.5 oz/127 mL) chopped green chiles, drained
2 cups shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
Tortilla chips or tostadas
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring beans, salsa and chiles to a boil. (You can also do this in the microwave; see Tips, left.) Stir in cheese until melted. Serve with tortilla chips or tostadas for dipping.
To microwave, place beans, salsa and chiles in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on High until bubbling, about 4 minutes. Stir in cheese and microwave until melted, about 11⁄2 minutes. To jack up the heat, add a finely chopped jalapeño pepper along with the beans.
