  • 4 Corn tortillas, each cut into six triangles
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 Tsp. Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp. Guajillo chili powder
  • 1/4 Tsp. Granulated garlic
  • 1/4 Kosher salt
  • 1/8 Tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Canned Black beans, rinsed and drained well
  • 2 Green onions, chopped and white/light green separated from dark green
  • 1/4 Cup Frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 Cup Mexican cheese mix, shredded
  • Fresh salsa, to serve
  • Avocado, pit removed and fruit mashed with salt and pepper, to serve

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cumin, chili, garlic powder salt and pepper. Place your cut tortillas in a bowl and lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray. Sprinkle the seasoning all over the chips tossing to make sure they all get some of the seasoning.
  • Put the chips on the baking sheet in a single layer so they crisp up. Bake for about 5 minutes. Flip and bake another 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Be sure they don’t burn.
  • Take the pan out of the oven seperate the chips into two servings creating a bed of chips for the toppings.  Scatter the black beans, corn and white/light green part of onions evenly over each pile of chips.  Scatter the cheese evenly over the top of both servings and put back in the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the dark green chopped onions.
