1 bag tortilla chips
1-14 oz can refried beans
1/2 lb cooked ground beef
1-6 oz can black olives
1/2 lb cheddar cheese, grated
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1-8 oz jar salsa
1-14 oz can sweet corn
1-4oz can diced jalapeños

1. Build a 1’x1′ bed of hot coals underneath a campfire grate or in the center of stable rocks, which will support the base of your cast iron pan.

2. Place half of the tortilla chips in the bottom of the pan, and top them with half of each of the beans, beef, olives, cheese, tomatoes, onion, salsa, corn, and jalapenos. Place a second layer of chips on top of the other ingredients, and then top these chips with the remaining ingredients, finishing with the cheese on top.

3. Cover the top of the pan with foil, and carefully place the pan on top of the grate or rocks. Let nachos cook, maintaining the hot coals for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Move the pan to a heatproof location and allow nachos to cool for a few minutes. Dig in and enjoy!
