Nachos are a great little snack or a perfect quick lunch. They are fast, tasty, and inexpensive. If you don't want to make Salsa Casera, use any fresh-made market salsa or simply dice tomato with onion and cilantro. Optional refried beans give more body.
Yield 4 servings

24-30 corn chips
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup Monterey jack cheese, grated
1/4 cup sliced black olives
2 tablespoons jalapeño pepper, sliced thinly
1 cup Salsa Casera

1/4 cup refried beans

1 Preheat oven to broil, or 400°F bake.
2 Space out chips on cookie sheet. If using refried beans, spread on chips as a foundation. Evenly sprinkle cheeses, and top with olives, jalapeño slices, and fresh salsa.
3 Bake on a high rack for 5 to 6 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble. Watch oven to avoid burning the chips.
4 Serve from the sheet with remaining salsa on the side.

notes Gauge heat of salsa and jalapeño and adjust to the right amount of spice desired.
