DIRECTIONS

  • Tortilla Chips:
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Arrange the tortilla wedges in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Lightly coat the wedges with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 5-8 minutes (depending on your oven), or until crisp.
  • Repeat the procedure with the remaining tortilla wedges.
  • Nachos:
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add cumin, chili powder and garlic. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  • Add undrained pinto beans and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Partially mash the bean mixture with a potato masher until slightly thick.
  • Place 8 tortilla chips on each of 6 plates. Spoon about 1/2 cup bean mixture evenly over tortilla chips on each plate. Top each serving with about 2 1/2 tablespoons queso fresco, 2 1/2 tablespoons salsa and 2 1/2 tablespoons avocado. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon cilantro.
