Simple Black Bean Nachos

Columbia County, New York I Friday, 29 March 2019

Last June, I blogged about Black Bean Nachos, and I’ve been eating them quite a bit ever since. I’ve been sticking to a very simple recipe, which is cheap and easy.

Tortilla chips
Black beans, drained
Red onion, thinly sliced
Taco sauce, Ortega brand
Sour cream

Choose a microwave-safe plate and layer tortilla chips, black beans, and red onion. Drizzle taco sauce across. Repeat layers, then microwave for one minute. Add several small scoops of sour cream on the side. Enjoy!

I use one bag of tortilla chips to make this three times. (No, I’m not really interested in knowing how many servings the bag of tortilla chips claims to have, so keep that little factoid to yourself, please. Ha!)

One can of black beans and a small red onion make three servings. An eight-ounce jar of taco sauce and an eight-ounce carton of sour cream last me for six servings.

I eat this as an entire meal, and not just as a snack. I never seem to get tired of it, and it fills me up for a long time. Try it! I hope you like it!
