Directions 9 steps | 40 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Spread the tortilla chips over the sheet pan. 

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine the kidney beans and the refried beans. Mix thoroughly.

Step 3

Use a spoon to spread the bean mixture over the chips. 

Step 4

Sprinkle the spinach leaves over the layer of the bean mixture.

Step 5

Layer the shredded cheese over the spinach.

Step 6

Top the spinach with the salsa.

Step 7

Finally, top with the jalapeños.  Give the pan a little shake so the ingredients sink down through the layers of chips. 

Step 8

Bake at 350°F until the cheese melts and starts to bubble. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top the nachos off with spoonfuls of sour cream, lime juice, lime wedges and a sprinkle of cilantro.

Step 9

Shake hot sauce over the nachos to taste. Serve hot. Enjoy!
