Quick Cheese NachosCuisinart Original Recipe
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make
it as extravagant or simple as you want – add some guacamole or salsa, gourmet cheeses, or keep it as is for a casual appetizer.
Either way it is sure to keep the family satisfied.
40 tortilla chips (this is an estimate – you need enough to cover the bottom of the baking tray, but can have more or less depending on how many mouths you need to feed)
2⁄3 cup refried beans (about ½ of a 15.5-ounce can)
1 small to medium tomato, chopped
1 jalapeño, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
1 to 2 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
½ cup sliced black olives (these can be purchased pre-sliced in a 2.25-ounce can. Be sure to drain them first.)
1 to 1¼ cups shredded Cheddar (about 4 to 5 ounces)
1. Set the rack of the Compact Toaster Oven Broiler to position B.
2. Line the baking pan with aluminum foil. Evenly distribute the chips on top of the prepared baking pan. Distribute the remaining ingredients over the chips, as evenly as possible, in the order listed.
3. Broil for about 5 to 6 minutes, or until the cheese is fully melted. Serve immediately with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and lime wedges.
