Nachos are always a hit. Turn the bean mixture into a super dip by thinning it out with chicken broth and sprinkling low-fat cheddar cheese on top.

Ingredients

Canola oil

1 tsp(s)

Uncooked shallot(s)

1 medium, or 1 small onion, finely chopped

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

Canned kidney beans

15 oz, rinsed and drained

Table salt

tsp(s)

Chili powder

tsp(s), chipotle variety, or more to taste

Baked low fat tortilla chips

20 piece(s)

Low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

7 tbsp(s), sharp variety

Fat free salsa

cup(s)

Cilantro

3 tbsp(s), fresh, minced, plus extra leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat oil over medium heat; then add shallot and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until shallots are tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans, salt and chile powder; mash with back of spoon or potato masher to make a pulpy mixture. Remove from heat; set aside.
  3. Place tortilla chips on a rimmed baking sheet. Spoon bean mixture over top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon salsa over top; immediately sprinkle with cilantro. Yields five topped chips per serving.
