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.
The beans have an authentic taste and look, and are made with real pinto beans. Made in partnership with IDAHOAN® Foods (the company that makes instant potatoes), you would not know they were instant beans by the taste.
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
