Well since the wife went out for dinner, I was stuck looking at the last bit of pinto beans that I done in the instant pot IP Pinto Beans...I just didn’t have it in me to eat another bowl since we’ve eaten them almost every night for dinner.

So I got creative and made nachos instead!

Tortilla chips layered with reheated pinto beans and salsa and pickled jalapeños:

Topped with a 1/2lb. Smoked Monterey Jack cheese and fresh jalapeño. I wanted to top with fresh cilantro after baking but it was no good:

Baked at 400F until bubbly, took 8 minutes:

Time to dig in, no utensils required.

Beans are finished, thank goodness.

Looks good. But, you know, Beans Freeze very well. There is not much I would eat Every Day for a week and Beans are not on the list...JJ

Looks awesome! I love loaded up nachos. We have done them a lot with what ever leftovers we have in the fridge. Too bad about the cilantro! Do your self a favor and next time you buy a couple bunches of cilantro stick them in a mason jar with some water. Cover them with a zip lock bag and seal up the best you can around the mason jar. Put it in the fridge and your good to go. We have kept it that way for dang near a month and its fresh as the day we baught it.... Anyway big like on the nachos . great way to finish those beans up!

Thanks John! These weren’t too spicy. Thanks for the like.

Thanks JJ, freezer space is at a premium until I could buy a new standalone freezer.

I agree, beans are tough to eat for a whole week, especially without incorporating in different ways.

Now, soups I could eat everyday but once warm weather hits, that stops. We make a big pot of something in the winter to last a few days. It saves us on the grocery bill and takes the guess work out of dinner.

Thanks jcam! I could definitely eat soup everyday too!

Thanks sowsage! Yeah these nachos were good! I would have added pulled pork but these were meant for a quick bachelor dinner.

Good tip on the cilantro. I usually wrap mine in a paper towel and place it in a gallon ziplock bag in the fridge. Didn’t do it here....but I’ll give the mason jar a try.

Joe that looks good my style of plating.

Thanks Richie. I ate them right off the aluminum foil, no need to dirty a dish...just messy fingers.

Looks good!

Damn Joe...those look amazing!! Very nice plate of nachos my friend. I really LIKE those. Hang tight and I might be able to aid in amping up the flavor. Been making fire roasted salsa and have an idea to make it even better, which may be forthcoming this weekend

Just wow...that's it,
Robert

Thanks Robert! I enjoy eating these from time to time...but I must admit Stacy ate most of them while I got over being sick. So I was content after two bowls.

I have done fresh fire roasted salsa, are you canning yours?

Those look really good. Nice job!
I think I'd add a dollop of sour cream to cool the heat of the jalapenos.

No, not canning it. I just make enough at one time for 2 small (appx 1 pint) Tupperware tubs and we eat it pretty quick.
