When you’re ready for a quiet night at home watching one of your favorite movies, here’s a popular snack that the whole family will appreciate and keep asking for more. These nachos are chock-full of pinto beans, corn, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and olives. We love the addition of fresh cilantro as a garnish, but it's definitely optional if you (or the kids!) aren't big fans. You can also substitute black beans for the pinto beans if you prefer. For a spicier version, add some minced jalapeños and use hot salsa instead of mild, which we call for here.
