Super Nachos


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 (16oz) cans refried beans
  • 2 8 oz cans of black olives, diced
  • 1 small jar pepper rings (pick your favorite poison)
  • taco seasoning
  • 1 bag round tortilla chips
  • 2 bags shredded mexican-style cheese
  • large (64 oz, say) jar of salsa



  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Spread a layer of chips on the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, enough to cover the bottom to a layer of 2-3 chips deep (but not too deep, it’s going to be a bottom crust…).
  3. Mix 1-1/2 cups of salsa and refried beans in a bowl.  Microwave bowl long enough to heat beans and spread bean mixture on chips, add a layer of shredded cheese, and heat in oven long enough to melt cheese.
  4. Cook ground beef, drain, and add 1/4 cup of taco seasoning and just enough water to make it not dry (say 1/2 cup)
  5. Remove pan from oven, add ground beef, and another layer of cheese; heat in oven again to melt cheese.
  6. Remove pan from oven, add a layer of salsa, black olives, and pepper rings; top with more cheese (mmm, mm, good), and heat until melty. Serve…may require a spoon; holds its shape better the next day
