I love to re-use ingredients in several meals to save time during the week. After making a batch of roasted peppers and onions earlier in the week, I wanted to make a quick appetizer to share. Nachos are typically high in fat, calories and sodium, but using some healthier toppings can make all the difference. I used black beans, but shredded chicken would work well, too. Try this nachos recipe at your next barbeque — you can also heat them up in a piece of the foil on the grill!
- 1 oz. reduced fat tortilla chips
- ¼ cup roasted vegetables
- ¼ cup black beans, drained
- 1 small clove garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. corn kernels
- ½ oz. shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup salsa
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Arrange tortilla chips in a single layer with edges touching on a foil-lined baking sheet. Top with vegetables, beans, garlic and corn, then sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake 8-10 minutes, until cheese melts and edges of chips are golden brown.
- Top with salsa and serve.
