Cheesy Loaded Nachos

Nachos are a favorite snack food, and we like ours loaded up! This version has black beans for fiber and avocado for some healthy fat. Nachos are a great customizable food. Chop up some black olives, use a different type of bean, or add a protein (lean ground beef, ground turkey, or chicken). The recipe below serves six.


  • 4 cups tortilla chips
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1.5 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup avocado, chopped

Serve with:

  • 2 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 lime


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Spread tortilla chips onto a lined baking sheet. Top with remaining nacho ingredients.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  4. Remove nachos from the oven. Top with cilantro and squeeze of fresh lime. Serve hot.
