Step 1: Ingredients

  • Scoops tortilla chips
  • Grated cheese (here I used monterey jack for the peppery kick)
  • Red and yellow bell peppers
  • Refried beans
  • Green onions
  • Avocado
  • Sour cream
  • Cumin, chilli powder
  • Salsa
  • Lime juice

Note: You can choose to add different things to these mini nachos depending on what you like on your nachos. (ex. beans, corn, tomatoes, hot sauce...etc.)

Step 2: Start Filling

Line up the scoops on a baking sheet carefully discarding broken ones into a separate bowl for snaking on.

Add cumin and chili powder (about a teaspoon each) to the refried beans mixture. Take a small spoon and add a small blob of beans to each scoop.

Step 3: Keep Filling the Scoops and Cook.

Add a red pepper chunk and yellow pepper chunk into the scoops. Add a small pinch of grated cheese to each scoop and bake on broil for about 5 minutes (check after 3 minutes). You want the cheese to be melted and the cups to turn a golden brown.

Step 4: Final Filling

After slicing the avocado, drizzle with lime juice (this keeps them from going brown and adds zesty flavour).

Add a small slice of avocado to the scoops and sprinkle all the scoops with green onions. Add a small blob of sour cream and voila!

Tip: for the sour cream, put a few heaping tablespoons into a small plastic bag. Cut the corner off and this allows you to squeeze the sour cream onto each nacho scoop in a more controlled way.

Put out salsa next to them for people to dip or add to their nacho scoops.
