It's a simple dish but making it is a bit of a fiddle. The great thing is that it sounds like junk food, looks like junk food, eats (in the best possible way, ie it's pretty addictive) like junk food but it's actually really healthy.
We start by making the refried beans. First we cook borlotti beans with onion, garlic, smoky chipotle in adobo and toasted spices then roughly mash them.
Then we make a fresh salsa of red capsicum and tomatoes, cooked with onion, garlic, jalapenos, coriander and lime juice.
And then we begin to layer - first the black turtle beans, then some cheese, then salsa and refried beans, then corn chips, more cheese and more corn chips!

Remove plastic film, open the bag of corn chips and scatter over the toppings. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 20 (from defrosted) to 30 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for a further 10 minutes. To serve, place a platter larger than the foil tray on top of the nachos, turn the two upside down then remove the foil tray and baking paper.
DEFROST INFORMATION: This dish is best cooked straight from frozen - otherwise the corn chips can become soggy. However, if defrosted, cook in a 180C oven for 20 mins.
