|For basic nachos|
|Crisp fried tortillas/Corn-flavored chips||8 Cup (128 tbs)|
|Shredded jack cheese/Mild cheddar cheese /half of each||1 Pound (4 Cups)|
|Canned california green chilies||4 Ounce, chopped (1 Can, For Mildest Flavor, Remove Seeds And Pith)|
Spread tortilla pieces about one layer deep (they overlap) in each of 2 low-rimmed 10 or 11-inch round pans or ovenproof plates.
Sprinkle tortillas evenly with cheese; then top with chiles.
Place both pans, uncovered, in a 400° oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese melts (or bake in sequence so you can replenish the first serving with another hot one).
Serve at once, picking up tortilla pieces with your fingers; if desired, keep nachos hot on an electric warming tray.
