Viva los Nachos this Cinco de Mayo - the healthy way! Most nachos are loaded with fat - but not these yummy nachos. Perfect for a party or fun dinner.
Ingredients:
1 cup diced onions
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 Tbsp fresh or canned jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 whole green bell pepper, diced
1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, black beans, or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 10-oz bag baked tortilla chips
1 fresh tomato, diced
3 ounces shredded lowfat mozzarella

Additional Toppings (optional):
Fat-free sour cream, salsa, chopped olives
Directions:
1 Preheat oven to 350 F.
2 Heat a non-stick pan and saute onions on medium high until clear.
3 Add garlic and saute for one minute. Add beans, pepper, and jalapenos to pan, cook and stir for about 10 minutes.
4 Transfer the contents to a bowl. In a seperate bowl, mash bean mixture until smooth, adding water if necessary to make puree smooth.
5 Place chips on a baking sheet. Spread beans, onions and pepper mixture evenly on top of tortilla chips. Sprinkle cheese and diced tomatoes. Bake until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
6 Add additional toppings if desired.
7 ENJOY!
