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.

Cheesy Thumpprint Cookies With Bourbon Tomato Jam
This has quickly become a favorite go to recipe for getting together with friends and families. This is a very easy dish today and flavorful. I have found when making this that the bourbon jam makes more than needed. I serve the rest on a block of cream cheese with crackers and it gets gobbled up right away.
Bourbon Tomato Jam
Place all ingredients for the jam, except bourbon, into a small sauce pan. Bring to boil and let sugar dissolve.
Bring to simmer and let the jam get thick. Once thickened add bourbon. Mix well and let cool.
