Easy Family Recipes: Nacho-rific!

Even if you’re not a football kinda gal, almost everyone looooooves a good nacho. This week, we’re going to amp up the health factor in our nachos a bit by adding our healthy, featured friends of the month: beans. Now you don’t need to feel quite as guilty as you slurp them down watching the Giants crush the Packers on Sunday. Whoops! Did I really say that? 😉 Wishful thinking perhaps.

This is a recipe I developed a few years ago. Your family is going to love it, and they won’t even realize the good you’re doing for them with those wonderful beans. Nosh away my friends!

Black Bean Nachos

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 pound lean Ground Beef or ground Turkey (not breast)
  • 1 cup Onion, chopped
  • 1 cup Green or Red Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 15 oz can petite diced Tomatoes, drained
  • 2 teaspoons Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground Coriander (you can omit if you don’t have any in the cupboard)
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 15 oz. can Black or Great Northern Beans, drained
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 1 large bag Tortilla Chips (try baked, they’re really good and save on the fat)
  • 1 to 2 cups Mexican Cheese Blend

Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef, onion, bell pepper, and garlic to pan. Cook for 10 minutes, or until ground beef has browned and onion is soft. Drain grease and discard to trash (NOT the sink, please.)

Return beef mixture to the pan and return to the heat. Add tomatoes and spices to the pan. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes.

Stir water, drained beans, and Tabasco to the pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until hot throughout; stirring occasionally.

Lay chips on serving platter. Top with beef and bean mixture, then top with cheese. Serve and enjoy!
