How do YOU make nachos?

I have made nachos alot of different ways and with alot of different ingredients.I have made asian ones with straw mushrooms and hoisin sauce. I have made pizza type nachos with red sauce and pizza toppings.
BBQ chicken with green onions.The ingredient list has been endless.

I have also used different methods of cooking them including a cheese sauce for dipping the chips versus baking or broiling the cheese on top the chips. I have made the in piles and as individual nachos.I have microwaved them many times as well.

I guess my "normal" way is too lay some refried beans down on a sheet pan and spread my chips out on top. I then grate some cheddar and then top with some pickled jalapenos and sri hacha sauce. Bake in 450 oven until cheese melts.

What have you tried and what do you like best?

I like black beans drained and warmed up with some salsa and maybe some onions, and then the chips, bean mixture, cheeses, jarred jalapeños, maybe some smoked chicken... all layered into a baking dish and baked. I stack some chips up along the side so some stay crisp. Basically I go with a Mexican themed nachos.

I do drive by nachos for a quick lunch. Tostitos, some mashed beans and/or whatever taco meat bean stuff leftovers, shredded cheese. On low in the MW for a couple minutes, then top with salsa and sour cream.

I have nachos any way I can. I just love em. Sometimes I go simple as tortilla chips covered with sharp cheddar and baked until melted. Other times I add salsa or taco meat or re-fried beans, or all three. Sometimes I even fry up my own chips using corn tortillas.
For a quick answer to a craving I have even been caught using the microwave.

Oh I forgot another one that happens sometimes at my house...cream cheese mixed with a can of Hormel chili no beans and melted in the microwave.
And another one; green chili and monterey jack cheese melted in the microwave.
Did I mention I love nachos?

My favorite is to use yellow corn chips topped with minced ground beef that's been cooked in lime and corriander and tossed with black beans, a cheese sauce made from moteray jack melted in milk with diced jalapenos and serranos, a little sour cream and a mix of diced tomatoes, onions, cucumber, avocado and cilantro marinated together in a splash of cider vinegar.
