Paula Deen's Macho Nachos!

These "Macho Nachos" from Paula Dean are amazing and have become my new Thanksgiving tradition when I am not with my family for the holidays! Also the PERFECT recipe for Cinco De Mayo!!!


  • 1 can re-fried beans
  • 1 large bag Tostitos (or your choice of white corn chips)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack
  • 1 jalapeno sliced, remove seeds  
  • 1 can chili/favorite chili recipe 
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Cilantro, remove stems
  • Avocado (lemon juice, salt, pepper)


Have all ingredients prepped and ready. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a small saucepan over low heat, cook re-fried beans until they are smooth enough to spoon onto nachos (heat up chili as well).  On a large baking sheet or oven proof platter, spread out a layer of tortilla chips and quickly put a teaspoon of re-fried beans on each chip.  Working quickly, sprinkle with onions, pepper jack cheese and jalapeno slices.  Spoon on chili and top off with cheddar cheese. Repeat layering until you have used all of the ingredients.

Place platter in the oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven.

Mash avocado and mix with a dash of salt, pepper, and a Tbsp. of lemon juice. 
Top nachos with sour cream, green onions, diced tomato, cilantro, mashed avocado, jalapeno slices and serve hot.
