red pepper nachos

Here’s a simple recipe that I have been pleasantly surprised with.

While at first I missed the crunch of my beloved tortilla chips, the fact that I can enjoy nachos without being weighed down makes it worth it.  Not to mention… these babies are tasty!

What you need:  I didn’t put any measurements, because it’s just not one of those recipes.  Use as little or as much as you like of each ingredient.
  • red peppers (one for each person)
  • cheese (I used a combo of sharp cheddar and mozzarella)
  • boneless chicken breast
  • ground beef
  • taco seasoning
  • black beans
  • red onion, finely diced
  • cilantro, finely chopped

What to do:

  • For the chicken, dice in small pieces and cook with a little olive oil in a pan.  Add taco seasoning.
  • For the ground beef, brown in a pan and add taco seasoning.
  • Slice red peppers in 6 or 8 pieces.  The bigger the slices, the easier to assemble.
  • Shred cheese (a food processor makes this super easy)
  • To assemble: Lay peppers on baking sheet and top with chicken, beef, black beans, onions and cheese.
  • Cook on 350 until cheese is nice and melted – about 10 minutes.
  • Top with fresh cilantro before serving.
