This is a dish that was introduced to me when I met my mother in law. It is a kind of twist on nachos and taco salad but a family favorite and one that is kid friendly.
Combination of nacho with a taco salad twist
Heat the refried beans in a pan. Stir occasionally until texture is smooth.
Put the olives, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, avocado, cheese, salsa, fritos, sour cream and jalapenos in separate bowls.
To assemble just put fritos for bottom, I crush mine. Top with beans and the toppings of your choice.

Baked Potato Board
I saw this and thought, I have to try this. I think you could add all sorts of items to the board which I plan to expand. Would be good with chili, variety of cheeses, steamed broccoli.
Preheat oven to 375.
Cut slices on the top of the potato. Rub down with the olive oil and place on baking sheet.
Cook for 30 minutes, should be tender when inserting a knife. Cook until done.
For the board you can decorate it with the side items butter through sour cream how you see fit.
To serve cut potato in half, I mash it a bit with a fork to make it fluffy. Put your toppings on top and ready to eat.
