My Husband's Snowy Day Nachos

My husband taught me a recipe this weekend that I have to share with you! It's definitely one of those "why didn't I think of that?" recipes. Somehow growing up in Texas, arguably "the land of nachos", I had never heard of spreading your tortilla chips with beans prior to sprinkling them with cheese. It's a tad tedious, but it's a fun team project that's definitely worth it! They're a great snack perfect for football season or, in our case, a snowy day. Serve them up on a cute platter for company, or for a lazy afternoon, just bring the entire baking sheet right into the living room, and eat them directly off the foil while watching the snow fall outside. There's no judgement here.
Tortilla Chips
Bean Dip
Grated Cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, longhorn, a Mexican blend, etc)
Pickled jalapeno slices (optional)

Preheat your broiler to High.

Spread each tortilla chip with a thin layer of bean dip, and lay on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle generously with grated cheese.
If you want to get really fancy, top each chip with a pickled jalapeno slice (or just loosely scatter them over the chips).

Slide your baking sheet under the broiler for just a couple of minutes until your cheese is nicely melted and a little browned. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn!

Serve immediately.
