Ingredients
  • 5  7 - 8  inches 
    corn or flour tortillas or 4 cups tortilla chips (about 4 ounces)
  • 1   cup 
    canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2  cup 
    salsa
  • 2   cups 
    shredded Monterey Jack, cheddar, queso quesadilla, Chihuahua, and/or asadero cheese (8 ounces)
  • 1/2  cup 
    roasted red sweet peppers, cut into thin strips
  • 2 - 4   tablespoons 
    fresh or canned sliced jalapeno peppers, drained
  •  
    Salsa (optional)
Directions
1.
For tortilla chips, stack tortillas and cut into wedges with scissors or a sharp knife. Place wedges in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove the chips from oven. Arrange tortilla chips in one layer, overlapping slightly, on an 11- or 12-inch ovenproof platter.
2.
In a medium saucepan combine black beans and the 1/2 cup salsa; cook and stir over medium heat just until heated through. Remove from heat; spoon bean mixture over chips.
3.
Sprinkle cheese, sweet peppers, and jalapeno peppers over bean mixture on chips. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately with additional salsa, if desired. Makes 10 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Prepare tortilla chips; cool but do not add toppings. Store chips in airtight container or self-sealing plastic bag at room temperature up to 24 hours, or freeze up to 2 weeks.
