Veggie Nachos–A Sunday Football Delight

Posted Dec 27 2010 12:00am

A delayed flight from Miami led to a very late night arrival in Annapolis, Maryland, early Sunday morning.  With a giant snow storm hitting the entire East Coast and thousands of flights being cancelled, I was happy to arrive… even at 2am!

While the veggies were cooking, I assembled the nachos. The key to great nachos is making them in 2 or 3 layers, so even the bottom chips get the toppings!   On a baking sheet, I layered: 

  • chips
  • canned black beans
  • jalapeno slices
  • grated cheese

After 12 minutes in the oven, at 350F, I topped the nachos with the sautéed veggies and we ate them with fresh guacamole & sour cream

Adding veggies, beans & guacamole to nachos adds vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, fiber and flavor!  I love the combination of sweet corn and spicy jalapenos.  Rob and I were planning on having the nachos as an appetizer but we were so stuffed afterwards, they became our dinner instead!

Tonight Rob is making me a German dinner: Bratwurst & Knödel!  Pictures and recap tomorrow!
