8 cups tortilla chips
1/2 cup lager beer, such as a Boston lager
2 cups shredded American cheese (8 oz)
1 cup shredded mild Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped (I omit this)
1 medium tomato, seeded, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Arrange tortilla chips on cookie sheet. Bake 5 minutes to warm chips.
  • Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat beer over medium heat until just starting to simmer. Slowly add the cheeses in small amounts, stirring constantly with whisk, until melted. Stir in chiles.
  • In medium bowl, mix beans and salsa. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes or until hot.
  • To serve, pour half of the cheese sauce over warm chips; top with half of the bean mixture. Top with remaining cheese mixture and remaining bean mixture. Serve with remaining ingredients.
