I love nachos. I love any kind of Mexican related food really, okay, I love all kinds of food in general. Even more, I love making food, meals, snacks, desserts and finding and creating new recipes that make my taste buds do a happy dance!
Today I am sharing a recent recipe that I have recently created to satisfy my nacho loving taste buds. If you love chips, do not run away when I tell you that these are chip-less nachos, I promise you will still love these , even without chips as the main boat for your nacho toppings.
I will grin ear to ear if you try this recipe and leave a comment with your thoughts!
Sweet pepper nachos are so easy to make, they work great as a snack, a side dish to a main entree like Mexican style chicken, or a spicy pepper steak. As with all of my recipes, feel free to take this one and make it your own, change up the ingredients to fit your taste. Some examples of ingredients you may change, are swapping out the black beans for beef or shredded chicken, and of course to add whatever toppings you desire.
Sweet Pepper Nachos
Prep Time; 10 minutes
Bake Time; 10 minutes
Yield; 4 side dish servings, or 2 meal servings.
- 1 small bag of sweet peppers.
- Black beans with roasted chili peppers (might as well add some more peppers to our peppers right? 😉 )
- Handful of shredded cheese, add to taste/desire.
- Sliced black olives, add to taste/desire.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees
- Slice the ends off of each sweet pepper, and then slice in half lengthwise. Pull out all seeds. Arrange sweet peppers close together on a baking sheet.
- Spoon black beans into each sweet pepper ‘boat’. (I used a baby spoon, that I neglected to get rid of even though I have no more babies at home, but it has come in handy with baking and cooking!) Top with cheese, olives, and guacamole if desired.
- Bake sweet pepper nachos for 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Remove from oven, and serve.
I only added guacamole to a few of the sweet pepper nachos, and you may do the same if you have guests that are unsure if they like it, or are very sure that they don’t like it! I love it, and I am looking forward to making these nachos with loads of guacamole for my dad when I visit my parents next! (He is a guacamole fanatic)
