Black Bean Nachos

It's sort of funny that we seem to be eating better during this major emergency than we do normally. Normally I cruise the internet looking for something to make for dinner and then run to the store when I'm picking someone up for school or taking someone to practice. Being told that you *can't* leave your home and that the nearby stores are under water must bring out my creative side. LOL!

Yesterday I wanted to make a quick snack for dh and myself. I remembered seeing these Black Bean Snack Bites that Jill over at Simple Daily Recipes blogged about recently and after a quick look in the pantry, realized I could make them or at least come close. I didn't have black beans but I did have some Spicy Black Bean Dip after my last Trader Joe's run.

Your black bean nachos look good to me!

I, often, run a drained can of black beans through my 1 cup processor to make a quick dip or nacho spread. I don't bother spicing them up, they're already good on their own.
