Kitchen Sink NachosCuisinart Original Recipe
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it as extravagant or simple as you want – here we go a little overboard and throw in just about everything."
60 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)
¾ cup refried beans (about ½ of a 15.5-ounce can)
1 small to medium tomato, chopped
1 jalapeño, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
2 to 4 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
1 can (4.5 ounces) chopped green chilies
1 cup sliced black olives (These can be purchased pre-sliced in a 2.25-ounce can. Be sure to drain them first.)
1 cooked chicken leg, shredded (skin and bone removed and discarded)
6 to 8 ounces shredded Cheddar and/or Monterey Jack (about 1½ to 2 cups)
salsa, guacamole and sour cream, for serving
lime wedges, for serving
1. Line the baking pan with aluminum foil. Evenly distribute the chips in the prepared pan. Distribute the remaining ingredients over the chips, as evenly as possible, in the order listed.
2. Put nachos into the oven with the rack in the upper position and set on Broil. Broil for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is fully melted.
3. Serve immediately with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and lime wedges.
