These vegetarian garden nachos are made with low-sodium canned beans and loaded with fresh veggies from the garden. Choose your own favorite vegetable toppings – radishes, tomatoes, cilantro, onions, and of course, avocados! Melted cheese and low-fat sour cream top off this four-star appetizer. It’s the perfect football food.

Ingredients

  • 1 ea. 15-ounce can low-sodium pinto beans, drained
  • 1/2 c. low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 c. red onion, diced
  • 1 t. olive oil
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 oz. baked corn tortilla chips
  • 1 c. reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, divided in half
  • 4 ea. radishes, sliced
  • 2 ea. medium Avocados From Mexico, cubed
  • 2 ea. vine-ripened tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 c. nonfat sour cream (or nonfat Greek yogurt)
  • 1 ea. lime, sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender. Stir in chili powder and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the beans and broth and cook until the beans are tender and heated through.
  2. Mash the beans coarsely with a fork or wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. On a large baking sheet, place half of the tortilla chips and cover evenly with 1/2 of cooked bean mixture and 1/2 of cheese.
  4. Top with remaining chips, beans, and cheese. Place in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  5. Remove from the oven and top with radishes, avocado, tomatoes, and cilantro. Top with sour cream and lime slices. Serve immediately.
