TUESDAY RECIPE: LOADED NACHOS (VEGETARIAN AND GLUTEN FREE)

Whether you’re a vegetarian, gluten-free, or eat pretty much anything, we’re sure you’ll like this easy-to-make twist on a classic snack:

 

INGREDIENTS

 

* Corn tortilla chips

* 1/2 cup cooked black beans

* 1/3 cup frozen corn kernels

* ¼ diced onion

* 1/4 cup shredded cheese

* 2-3 scoops of your preferred salsa

* 1 scoop sour cream

Optional: dash of lemon juice and small handful of cilantro, if you’re feeling extra fancy

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Get a plate and lay out the corn tortillas so that they cover the entire plate with minimal overlap between chips.
  1. Cook the black beans and frozen corn according to their directions.
  1. Get a spoon to scoop the black beans and put them as evenly as possible over the corn chips. Do the same with the corn and diced onion.
  1. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. The whole plate can go into the microwave for 10-12 seconds if you want the cheese to be more melted.
  1. Top with salsa and sour cream

 

Enjoy!
