Nachos for dinner? What kid wouldn’t say, “Yes please!” To give these a little extra protein boost, I serve over bean tortilla chips, but regular corn tortilla chips work just as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15-ounce) drained and rinsed can pinto beans
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 18 tortilla chips
  • 1/4 cup shredded Daiya cheddar
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Shredded lettuce
  1. In a bowl, mash together the pinto beans, garlic powder, and chili powder, set aside.
  2. Arrange the tortilla chips in two piles on a baking sheet lined with foil. Top each pile with about 1/2 cup bean mixture and sprinkle each pile with 2 tablespoons cheddar.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 4 minutes, just until the cheese melts.
  4. Sprinkle with halved cherry tomatoes and shredded lettuce to taste before serving.
