Nachos with black beans and salsa – 11 Sept 2014

main140911setting140911I brought home excellent leftover salsa and some black beans from an event at work, and we made nachos with them, using up our Costco $3 mega-bag of tortilla chips. The chips were a bit under the weather, and I tried an online idea of microwaving them 30 seconds – and then a second 30 seconds – and that didn’t do much, so I put them under the broiler, down more than a foot, so it was more like a hot oven, and they were improved a bit.

Monterey Jack over them and broiled briefly till the cheese melted, and topped with the heated beans, and the unheated salsa. It was good but not fabulous. When D went to the Bowl get the cranberry beans for tomorrow, he bought the Jack, and also a good Belgian ale called Afflinger Tripel. This is the right thing to have with Nachos.

  1. Your nachos look absolutely glorious! Really loving your addition of black beans – and even better that you were able to reuse them! If you have a minute, I’d love your thoughts on my vegan nachos! 🙂
