Reheating Nachos...  
My lovely husband was so sweet to bring me home some nachos from our favorite mexican restaurant, and now I would like to reheat them for dinner.
What would be the best way to reheat them without the chips turning soggy?
I have a feeling cooking them in the microwave would leave me with limp chips...

Or are my nachos doomed to be soggy forever?
If it matters, it is tortilla chips, cheese and refried beans...nothing else.

Thanks in advance!

Oven or toaster oven!

Convection or toaster oven. I'd go with 250°F to minimize the chance of drying out the cheese, beans, or whatever.

This is the reason why toaster ovens are the best kitchen appliance EVER.
I could never live with out mine!!

I was about to say "This is why I have a toaster oven -- I"ve tried living without one and it was much missed in situations like this."

I'd just pop 'em under the broiler in your oven for no more than 5 minutes -- should be perfect!

The broiler for more than a minute or two will singe the tortilla chips. I like to make my own nachos and I have burnt many a chip this way... you gotta watch them closely!

My boyfriend is a cook and read over my shoulder and said, "after they sit there with toppings and get soggy, there's nothing you can do... except suck it up and eat soggy nachos." Haha, just thought I'd share. :) I've had this problem before, too! If he gets them for you again, tell him to ask them if they can give him the chips with the toppings on the side so you can put them on when you are ready to eat it.
