What is better than tacos? Nachos!
When my husband and I were dating, one of our favorite restaurants had amazing barbecue nachos. Since having our son, it has been difficult for us to dine out at restaurants either as a family and especially the elusive date night with just the two of us. Therefore, many of the recipes that I make are those which have been inspired by our favorite restaurant meals that we can enjoy at home. Not to mention, we also save a good amount of money by mostly eating at home.
This black bean nacho recipe is something that is not only easy to make but delicious. When served over a bed of lettuce and tomato it can also be very healthy. Let’s also not forget that since this is a meatless recipe it is perfect for every Friday, if you are an all-year meat avoider like me, or for Ash Wednesday and Fridays in the Lenten season!
Children, especially toddlers, can be picky eaters and getting nutritious food into their bellies is top priority for parents. Since this black bean nacho recipe is so versatile, I can customize it so that our entire family can enjoy it. I typically put jalapeños on one half of the nachos and then sliced black olives on the rest. That is, if my son hasn’t eaten all the black olives before I can get them on the nachos! You can also use different beans rather than black or refried beans.
I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe for black bean nachos.
