Cheesy Black Bean Nachos

June is #DairyMonth and today is #NationalCheeseDay! What is better than hot melty cheese? Not a lot! So many of my favorite dishes are made with cheese, like nachos.  We all love them, but the guys are pretty boring in that they just like the chips and cheese. 

I like toppings, and lots of them, and don't forget the sour cream on the side!   Traditionally I see nachos with refried beans, and I'm not particularly a fan.  I ran across this recipe from Taste of Home on Pinterest, and loved that it used black beans instead.


I used cherry tomatoes instead of the canned, it was what I had on hand.  I seeded and sliced the jalapenos per the recipe, but they weren't spicy enough for me that way.  Next time I'll definitely just slice them.   The rest of the toppings were perfect. Crunchy chips, cool tomatoes, a little heat from the peppers, plus the protein-packed beans.   Thank you so much to Cynthia N. for her awesome recipe!

Thank you so much to Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla for hosting, and to all the other #FestiveFoodies for sharing their recipes!
