My hubby brought home corn nachos the other day and I got inspired to make nachos!! These are not your normal nachos. There is no beef, there is o cheese, but they are supremely delicious!!! These are a wonderful crowd pleaser, too. They also happen to be packed with Protein & Raw Veggies which is fuel for your brain and healthy but buddies. These are super satisfying too!!! And you will feel soooo goood afterwards!! Serve the nachos along side a salsa, guacamole, or both! 🙂

Buy canned black beans on sale.
Use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge.
You can even sautee mushrooms with the black beans and onions, and choose only 1 veg and you are good to go. The more vegetables though, the more nutrition.
Quick Tips & Tools:
1 medium pan. 1 knife. 1 cutting board. 1 serving platter, 1 serving bowl
If you are a cheese fan,
Sprinkle cheese on top at the end. You can also pop into oven at 500F for 2 minute to melt that cheese.
Check out my recipe below. This is a great addition to the salsa, or instead of the salsa.
Make your onions ahead of time. I often caramelize my onions on a sunday, and keep them in fridge, in glass container, with a lid. I then take out what I need. Add it to a pan, add beans in there and this mean will be done as soon as you get your veggies chopped (10 minutes max!!)
