Yesterday we finally got snow. And just as it started snowing I got a really strong craving for Nacho flavored Doritos. The snow won out and I ended up using what we had in the house to make some nachos.


3 corn tortillas, each tortilla cut into 8
Mozzarella cheese
2 avocados
1 can refried beans
Green onions (aka spring onions), sliced
Hot sauce
Salt and Pepper

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the each tortilla into eight slices.

Place the tortillas on a baking tray and cook in the oven until browned, for about 10 minutes. (Keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.) I think burned is a flavor so I like them really brown.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop. Place the avocados in a bowl. Mash and add hot sauce, salt and pepper. When the tortillas have browned, arrange them on a plate. Sprinkle with cheese and top with refried beans. Put the plate in the oven on the center shelf and cook the nachos until hot and bubbly. Remove and top with avocados, onions and other toppings as desired.
