"Very good nachos! I put the warm refried beans and cheese on first and put them under the broiler for a few minutes. I added the other toppings at the last minute. Nice casual appetizer."

"Is it possible to make this recipe up a bit ahead of a party? Seems they might wind up getting soggy. Has anyone tried this?"
