Loaded Nachos

Nachos - 5

When I first saw these nachos on How Sweet It Is, I immediately bookmarked them to make at a sooner-rather-than-later date. You see, Jessica and I have a lot in common, with love of cheese and bacon and general aversion to vegetables at the top of the list (although the CSA hubby and I joined this year is quickly changing my mind about the vegetables!). I was especially intrigued about taking regular old corn tortillas and baking them, essentially making my own tortilla chips. I thought they would be bland and boring, but sprayed with a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, they were delicious, and best of all, healthy! Stock up on corn tortillas for a quick and healthy snack that pulls together in no time at all!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the tortillas into quarters.

Nachos - 1

Lay the tortillas out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray them with cooking spray and sprinkle with sea salt.

Nachos - 2

Bake 10-15 minutes or until brown and crispy.

Nachos - 3

Place the chips on a plate and top with the chicken, refried beans, black beans, salsa, onion, avocado, and cheese. I didn’t even add cheese to my plate, and they were still perfect!

  2. I love oven crisped up tortilla chips. Whenever we’re having something Mexican-inspired, Noel will crisp up a few extras and squash some extra avocado for an impromptu snack. So good!

  5. Interesting! I didn’t you you can get pre-baked tortillas..i only know the tortillas in bags as chips! lol! I’m addicted to eating those chips ones with melted cheese whenever i watch movies at the cinema..(they have those sold here too with the I’m going to check out our supermart to see if they sell pre-baked ones..i’m sure the pre-bake ones are definitely healthier!
