Cooking with Chef Bryan: Baked nachos


(KUTV) Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley


  • 1 lb pounds ground beef
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 2 cups re-fried beans
  • 2 cups fresh salsa
  • 2 cups grated cheese (your favorite)
  • 1 cup chopped olives
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bag tortilla chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degree’s.
  2. Fully cook the ground hamburger and drain off excess grease if needed. ( I like to rinse off the hamburger after it’s cooked.)
  3. Return the hamburger to the frying pan and add the taco seasoning to the hamburger. Cook according to the taco seasoning package.
  4. While the hamburger is finishing cooking, reheat the refried beans and add 1 cup fresh salsa and 1 cup cheese to the refried beans. Stir to incorporate and melt the cheese.
  5. To assemble, place the chips into a 9x13 baking pan or a pan of your choice. Depending on how large the bag of chips are, you may have leftover chips.
  6. Spoon the prepared ground beef over the chips. Spread the refried beans over the ground hamburger and top with remaining cheese.
  7. Place the nachos into the oven and bake until the cheese has melted.
  8. Remove from the oven and spoon the remaining salsa on top followed by the chopped olives, mushrooms, chopped green onions, and chopped tomatoes. Serve and Enjoy!
