Veggie Nachos


These are perfect when you’re craving a munchie fix.  These are heavy on the veggies and light on the cheese so I didn’t feel as guilty about bingeing on a whole batch 🙂

Standard plate full of blue corn organic tortilla chips

1 cup black beans, cooked

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese

3/4 cup chopped tomato

1/2 cup chopped red onion

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/4 cup chopped orange pepper

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp cayenne powder

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a frying pan over medium heat, cook orange pepper in 2 tbsp oil
  • Saute for 5 minutes then add black beans and continuously stir for 3 more minutes
  • Add garlic, salt, black pepper and cayenne powder and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring, then remove from heat
  • Layer chips on an oven safe plate and top with 1/4 cup cheese
  • Evenly distribute tomatoes ontop of that
  • Add 1/4 cup cheese and then add bean and bell pepper mix onto that layer
  • Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and then bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
