Black Bean Nachos

Black Bean Nachos

These nachos were birthed out of a need to cut back on meat in our house.  After eating one bite, I realized I was never going to make nachos with meat again.  They are amazing!  John even said to specify that he likes them better than beef nachos.  That’s saying a lot from a guy.  They are super easy and quick to make for one person or a crowd.

Start with a can of black beans.  I used some that I made from dry beans in the crock pot and froze.
