I know I promised these wouldn't be boring, regular nachos, but before things get too crazy, I decided to make my version of classic nachos. According to the food dictionary on Epicurious, a nacho is a chip topped with melted cheddar cheese and chopped chilis. These nachos are topped with cheese, chilis, and refried beans.
To give the nachos a more gourmet feel, I fried tortillas to make fresh chips. These were incredibly tasty and easy to make. Be careful when frying the tortillas, you don't want them too crisp because you'll finish them off in the oven. Also, be sure to open a window or turn on a fan. When I was making them, I set off my fire alarm! To see the recipe, read more.
