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.
