Super Nachos

A normal Bates Fourth of July party required at least 4 batches as an appetizer.

Brown 1 1/2 lb. ground beef (I like lean chili ground beef) and drain off the grease.

In flat baking pan, spread evenly in layers:

32 ounce (2 small cans or 1 big one) Refried beans

Browned meat

3 ounce can of Ortega diced green chilis (Other brands work, but get DICED)

16 ounces Salsa (Note pick the heat you want, this is all the heat)

Cover with 1 Cup mixed Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese. (More if desired)

Bake at 300 for 25 minutes.

Cover mix with:

2 Cups Guacamole dip (Calvado frozen)

2 Cups Sour Cream

Decorate with small can of sliced black olives and chopped green onions.

Serve with the heartiest tortilla chips you can find.
