Karen discovered a wonderful Mexican Restaurant called La Morenita in Palo Alto, California over 10 years ago which serves these amazing nachos which looked like a blooming rose. She has been making them ever since.
1 bag of Neal Brother’s Round Tortilla Chips
1 can of refried beans
1/4 cup of Neal Brother’s Salsa
1/2 can of sliced black olives
1/2 pint of cherry tomatoes
1/4 jar sliced jalapeno peppers, drained
1/2 cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1. Spread the refried beans into the bottom of a round ovenproof dish.
2. Spread the salsa sauce (Neal Brothers is our fav.) on the top of the refried beans
3. Place the chips in a circular pattern starting in the centre of the dish. The salsa/bean mixture on the bottom of the pan helps to keep the chips standing upright.
4.Top with cherry tomatoes, olives and jalapeno peppers, sprinkle with cheese
Bake at 375° Fahrenheit oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and the bean dip is warm.
