Nachos With Chicken and Black Beans

  • 6 oz tortilla chips (round chips are preferable)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 can (16 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • Chopped cilantro Salsa (either fresh or your favorite bottled salsa)
  • Pickled Jalapenos

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Arrange the chips in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spoon the beans evenly over the chips, then top with the cheese, chicken, and onion. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cheese is fully melted and bubbling. Remove.

Combine the lime juice, sour cream, and cilantro. Spoon over the nachos. Top with the salsa and jalapenos.
