While these are not true nachos, they are close enough to full your brain and keep you on track with your health and fitness goals. Did I mention that they’re delicious?
Healthy 'Nachos' with Black Beans and Butternut Squash
Feel free to experiment with the beans, and try different squash like kabocha, acorn, and delicata. You can also increase the spiciness by adding jalapenos or your favorite chili pepper spice.
Heat oil in a large pan on medium heat and add onions and squash. Cook for 5 minutes and add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, and salt.
Add beans, tomatoes and broth and simmer for 30 minutes. The squash should stay formed but be fork tender.
To create each individual serving, layer the chips, squash and black bean componant, and then optional toppings. Adding the cheese to the very top allows you to 'think nachos' without using more than needed. What? You don't overdo it with cheese? You are one of the lucky ones! 😉
