Loma-Linda’s Super Nachos

If you are near Toledo, Ohio’s airport in Swanton, Ohio (I know it doesn’t make sense) stop in Loma-Linda Mexican Cuisine Restaurant and try the Super Nachos. According to locals they’re the best around.  

Don’t worry if you can’t get there, because I have their recipe right here so you can make them in the convenience of your own home.

This recipe was inspired by the owner’s mother who started the restaurant in the 1950’s. Servings 6-8


1 large ripe avocado, peeled
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup tomato, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 15oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2/3 cup water, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 lb ground beef
1 tablespoon chili powder
7 oz tortilla chips
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz/1 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 400F.

In a small bowl mash the avocado with the lemon juice. Stir in the onions, tomato, salt and pepper; set aside. Mash the bean with 1/3 cup water; place in a skillet and cook over medium heat until hot. Stir in the oil, then remove from heat and set aside. In another skillet brown the ground beef and drain. Add the chili powder to the beef with the remaining water and cook until the water evaporates.

Line a baking dish with foil and arrange the chips in a single layer. Top with the bean and meat mixtures. Sprinkle with cheese and bake until cheese melts, about 4 minutes. Top with avocado mixture and a drizzle of sour cream. Serve immediately. Yum Yum!
