Really Quick Homemade Nacho Recipe

Sharing is caring!

You know those days when you are looking at the clock and it is dinner time and you have no idea what to make? I recently put together a really simple Homemade Nacho recipe with HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans. I had never even heard of instant beans before, potatoes, yes, but beans?

So I had to check these out for myself. I am all about saving time in the kitchen and if these were anything like their canned counterpart, I would be convinced. I not only made bean and cheese nachos, but I also made a version of Beef Nachos as well made with ground beef.

Really Quick Homemade Nacho Recipe

2 cups tortilla chips

1 package Herdez Instant Beans

1 cup cheese

1 tomato diced

1 avocado diced

1/4 cup bottled

Make instant beans as directed on package.

While beans are cooking, spread tortilla chips on a large, microwave-proof plate

Top tortilla chips with beans when fully cooked

Add cheese and place plate in microwave about 80 seconds until cheese is melted.

Top with tomato, avocado, salsa and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.


You can even add some cooked ground beef and top with sour cream for a heartier meal, as shown below. This meal takes a few more minutes. The ground beef is made on the stovetop* and when the ground beef is fully cooked, you drain and add on top of the beans.

*1 lb ground beef is browned in a skillet. Add 1/2 package taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water. Cook over medium heat until water has evaporated, about 5 minutes

HERDEZ Instant Refried Beans are available in four flavors: Traditional, Chorizo, Jalapeño, and Queso. These beans can be found in major stores soon if they are not there already.

I used the Chorizo flavored for this recipe and it was nice and had a nice mild flavor. For more information and recipe ideas, check out the Herdez Product page. Follow the conversation on social media with the hashtag,#FrijolesConTodo
