chopped fresh cilantro and fresh lime wedges for serving optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place about 20 tortilla chips on the prepared pan and space out so they aren't touching.
Top each chip first with a spoonful of refried beans, then some shredded cheddar cheese, then one pickled jalapeño slice.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown, and beans are heated through.
Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, if desired.
For a vegetarian version, make sure you use vegetarian refried beans (many canned versions use lard).
In a hurry? Instead of baking in the oven, you can assemble these nachos on a large plate and microwave them until the cheese melts and the beans are heated through (about 2 minutes, depending on your microwave).
