Ingredients

2 tomatoes, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced 

1 yellow onion, finely chopped 

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 

Kosher salt

Baked Tortilla Chips, recipe follows

1/2 cup black beans 

1/2 cup pinto beans 

1/4 cup black olives, chopped 

1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar 

1/4 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese 

2 limes 

3 tablespoons Greek yogurt 

1 avocado, diced 

Baked Tortilla Chips:

Twelve 6-inch corn tortillas (preferably white)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 

Fine salt 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, onions and half of the cilantro. Season with salt and set aside.
  3. Spread the Baked Tortilla Chips on a baking sheet and top with the black beans, pinto beans, olives, Cheddar and pepper Jack. Cook until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  4. While the nachos are cooking, slice each lime into 6 wedges. Squeeze 2 of the wedges into the yogurt, season with a pinch of salt and stir. Reserve the remaining wedges for serving.
  5. While the chips are still hot, scatter the tomato mixture and avocados on top, then drizzle on the yogurt. Top with the remaining chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Baked Tortilla Chips:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the oil. Stack the tortillas and cut the pile into sixths to make chips. Spread the chips out in a single layer on 2 large baking sheets and season with salt. Bake until golden brown and crisp, rotating the baking sheets once, 12 to 15 minutes.
