Black Bean Nachos

Before we get into the recipe, if you have a few seconds to spare - take my What's your favorite Thanksgiving dish poll on Facebook! I promise it's painless and easy! ;)

Sometimes, meals like this make me feel like I'm cheating. There's really nothing to it. I decided I wanted to try a meatless version of nachos for one of our Meatless Monday dinners - and this is what we came up with! It makes a nice, light meal!

Black Bean Nachos
Yield: 6-8 servings

Tortilla Chips, pre-packaged or homemade, warmed if desired
16 oz. Velveeta cheese product
1 can (10 oz.) Ro-Tel tomatoes, undrained
2 cans (15 oz. each) black beans, drained and rinsed
Sour cream, green onions and salsa, for garnishing

Place tortillas on plate. 

Combine the Velveeta and Ro-Tel in a saucepan over low heat. Continue to cook and stir until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. (To microwave: Place the cheese and Ro-Tel in a covered casserole. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes. Stir the mixture and continue to microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.)

Top the tortilla chips with cheese sauce. 

Next, put the beans in a microwave-safe container. Cover and microwave for approximately 1½-2 minutes or until heated through. Add the beans to the top of the cheese sauce. 

Garnish with sour cream, green onions and salsa, if desired.

** In the event you have any leftover cheese mixture and tortillas, they are just as great as a chip and dip! ;) 

I hope you enjoy!
