  • 14 ounce bag tortilla chips
  • 1 pound chorizo (casings removed)
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • 15 ounce can black refried beans
  • 16 ounce jar verde salsa
  • 15 ounce can nacho cheese sauce
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado (chopped)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1 green onion (thinnly sliced)
  • ¼ cup loosely packed chopped cilantro leaves


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add chorizo and red onion to a skillet set over medium heat. Cook until chorizo is cooked through and onion is tender.
  • Pour bag of tortilla chips on a large sheet pan. Bake in the oven for 3 minutes, or until tortilla are warm to the touch.
  • Heat refried beans and nacho cheese sauce in small saucepans on the stovetop, or in bowls in the microwave.
  • Peel and chop the avocado and toss it in the juice of one lime. The lime juice will prevent browning and add additional flavor to your nachos.
  • Assemble the nachos by placing half of the chips on your serving tray. Top evenly with chorizo and refried beans. Then add a second layer of tortilla chips and top with salsa, cheese sauce, sour cream, shredded cheese, and fresh vegetables.
