Meatless Nachos

Don't get me wrong, I love beef, but sometimes it's so expensive and I'm lazy and don't want to cook it, so I played around and came up with these nachos, which are quick and easy and delicious. Full of protein and I never miss the meat. You can use any kind of salsa with these, or I just tried it this morning with Taco Bell's new "bold and spicy chipotle" creamy sauce and they were amazing. The picture here is from the time I used both pinto and black beans in the nachos. You can use any kind of bean; I just use pinto beans because they are usually the cheapest. You can also add onions, peppers, tomatoes, or other nacho toppers to shake things up a bit.

These are just like pre-dipped chips... yum! They get soggy pretty quick, so prepare to munch just as soon as they're cool enough to eat. Perfect for game nights... or whenever! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
