Happy Labor Day! Can you believe we’re already in September?! Before you know it, I’ll be frantically putting together a Thanksgiving menu right before the holidays!

But before I bring out the pumpkin recipes in full mode, I have a very special recipe that is an absolute must for your Labor Day party spread (or for dinner on a Friday night if you’re like me!). Here we have an oh-so-cheesy meatless nacho dish with both black beans AND refried beans. Plus, you can’t forget about the garnished avocados and pickled jalapeños.

This dish comes together so quickly, and you’re free to add whatever toppings your heart desires without any skimping on the good stuff – bacon, shrimp, chorizo, Sriracha – the sky’s the limit!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I like the meatless nachos much better than adding meat to the recipe.

  2. this looks delicious! DO i use the sauce and/or water that is already in the can or do i drain it?

  3. I made these for a Super Bowl potluck..they were such a hit!!! 

  4. how do i make refried beans

  5. Are the refried beans black or pinto ?.

  6. yum! I love the addition of corn to the nachos. I added my avocado after baking instead of before as indicated because I’m funny about my avocado being cold. Delicious!

  7. hmmm, could you make this without the nacho chips and just use it like a nacho dip?

  8. I made these tonight with ground turkey and taco sauce added in. Delicious! We made a meal out of it for my family of 4. Thanks so much!

  10. NACHO Tuesday!!!

  11. These sound incredible but my fam are meat lovers so my meat base is always 1# of ground beef with with 1 can ff refried beans plus a pkg of taco seasoning! Stretches expensive hamburger without too much difference in texture. I also add a can of refried beans to my chili to thicken it.

  12. We loved these! I never thought to put corn and avocados AND green chiles before. So yummy.

  13. I love your blog and this recipe looks delicious! I was just wondering if there was anything you would serve with this so I could make it a meal? Or would you say it’s enough for a meal for two? Thanks!


    • These nachos can definitely be filling but they’re more meant to be served as an appetizer, particularly for game day!

  14. These were delicious! My kids and husband couldn’t get enough!

  15. I absolutely looove nachos & these look to die for! Added them to my ziplist recipe box! Will be making them very soon!
    Yummoliousness! 🙂 B-) O=-)

  16. Great to serve with a salad of bibb lettuce, orange slices, jicama -diced or julienned, a sprinkle of chili powder and vinaigrette! Maybe with lime.
