I have made this delicious nachos recipe with chicken and black beans so many times, that I just have to share it with you guys. This recipe is so simple and so family-friendly and I know you will make it again and again. So don’t forget to pin it!

Who does not like Mexican food? Seriously! Have you ever met someone who has said, nah… Mexican?… I pass… I haven’t either. (Psss… if you have, let me know in the comments šŸ™‚ ) My kids love Mexican for dinner and the recipes like my Cajun Chicken and One Pan Chicken and Rice are a big hit in our home and here on A Is For Apple.

Nearly all the ingredients I use in this recipe come from Aldi Australia. I love how Aldi has so many items that do not contain any nasties like artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. They also have a huge range of organic items that will definitely not break the bank. And no, this is not a sponsored post, just sharing my experience šŸ™‚

ingredients used in this recipe: corn chips, chicken mince, black beans, diced tomatoes, spices

The star of this dish is obviously the chicken sauce. Gently fried chicken mince with black beans, tomatoes and spices is sooo good. You can also use it for a Mexican bowl and serve it with rice and guacamole instead of nachos. If I haven’t convinced you yet to give it a go, I don’t know what will.

Can I make this nachos vegetarian or vegan?

It is very easy to make these nachos vegetarian or even vegan if you want. Simply swap the chicken for a tin of brown lentils, swap the cheese for the vegan cheese and you are good to go. Black beans and lentils are both great sources of plant protein.

Can I meal-prep this nacho recipe?

You can’t fully cook this recipe ahead of time, but what you can do is to prepare the sauce in advance and refrigerate it for 2-3 days in the fridge or freeze it for up to 3 months. Then just assemble it, sprinkle it with cheese and bake. Dinner is ready.

Description

Hola amigos! A delicious and easy-to-make nachos recipe with chicken and black beans is coming your way. Keep scrolling to see how to make it.


Ingredients

Scale

1 bag of organic corn chips (I recommend using organic corn chips, because corn is one of the most modified crops)

300g of free-range or organic chicken mince (I use thigh meat)

1 tin of BPA-free black beans drained (organic if possible, they usually don’t cost more than the conventional variety)

34 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1 large garlic clove, minced

2 tsp of your favourite Mexican spice (or use 1 tsp of ground cumin + 1 tsp of smoked paprika +1 tsp of salt. Add 1/4 tsp of ground chili, if you like it spicy, leave it out if cooking for kids)

1 BPA-free tin of organic diced tomatoes

1 cup of shredded cheese, I use Tasty

1 avocado, coriander leaves, and Greek yoghurt or sour cream to serve.


Instructions

Preheat your oven to 200’C

In a large frying pan, heat some extra virgin olive oil on medium-high heat.

Add the chicken mince and fry for 3-4 minutes, breaking up the meat into small chunks.

Add the minced garlic, cook for 1 minute

Add the spices, cook for another minute

Add the diced tomatoes and a splash of water, approximately 1/6 of the tin, and bring to simmer. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the baking tray by placing a sheet of baking paper on the tray.

Arrange the nachos on the tray, spread the chicken and black beans mix on top of nachos, sprinkle with cheese, and cook for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and browned a little.

Take the nachos out, place some avocado slices on top, sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves, add some dollops of yoghurt or sour cream and enjoy.
