INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bag blue corn chips 9 ounces

  • 1 can black beans 15 ounces, drained and rinsed

  • 1 can red beans 15 ounces, drained and rinsed

  • 1 can no-bean chili 15 ounces

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

  2. Place a single layer of corn chips in the bottom of each foil pan. Sprinkle each layer with 2 tablespoons beans, 3 tablespoons no-bean chili and 1/4 cup cheese. Repeat to make another layer.

  3. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Place the pans on the grill, cover and cook until the cheese is melted, bubbling and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and chili powder and mix until well blended.

  5. Top the nachos with the chili-sour cream, sliced scallions, jalapeno slices and diced tomato.

  6. Cook’s Note: The nachos can also be cooked in the oven. Place the foil pans in a 375 F degree oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 10 to 12 minutes. Top with the chili-sour cream, sliced scallions, jalapeno slices and diced tomato.
