Load up the nachos on a baking sheet, then bring straight to the table for easy serving and a great presentation. While we love melted shredded cheese, we found that it makes the nachos a bit unwieldy. Instead, a creamy cheese sauce coats each chip and makes it easier to separate from the pack. Topping potential is endless, but we like sliced avocado and jalapeño.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Place 1/4 cup beans in a bowl; reserve. Place remaining beans and 1/2 cup water in a mini food processor; process until smooth. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add beef; cook 8 minutes, stirring to crumble. Stir in chili powder. Stir in reserved 1/4 cup beans, pureed beans, and green onions; cook 1 minute. Remove pan from heat.

Step 3

Arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on a large foil--lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat tortillas with cooking spray. Broil 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and crisp. Remove pan from oven. Spoon beef mixture evenly over tortillas.

Step 4

Combine 1/4 cup milk and cornstarch in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine cornstarch mixture and remaining milk in a small saucepan over medium-high; bring to a simmer. Stir in cheese; cook 2 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons water and sour cream. Drizzle cheese mixture and sour cream mixture over nachos. Top with tomato, cilantro, and salt.

Kind of bland.  I did like the bean and beef combo.  The tortillas never really crisped up like chips.  Didn't bother with the cheese sauce - just used shredded cheese on top.  Probably won't make again because CL has much better recipes.  How come the photo shows avocado but that isn't included as an ingredient in the recipe?
