Squash, Pepper and Black Bean Nachos

Here's a quick and easy snack or dinner. I have a weakness for tortilla chips, so I love any excuse to eat them as a meal! These blue corn tortilla chips are my new favorite.

Squash, Pepper and Black Bean Nachos
serves 2 as a meal
 2 T olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 summer squash, sliced
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tomato, diced (I used a yellow tomato!)

Serve with:
tortilla chips
sliced avocado
vegan sour cream

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and cook the garlic until slightly browned. Add in the bell pepper and squash and cook until tender. Add in the black beans and heat through.
Put tortilla chips on a plate and top with the bean mixture, then add on the diced tomato, avocado, salsa, vegan sour cream or your own favorite toppings. Enjoy!

This would also be great on top of some lettuce for a taco salad, or what about over some rice or quinoa? I may have to make this again soon!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These sound wonderful! I love Mexican food, and I love squash! Wish I had a plate of these for dinner tonight ;)!

    1. Thank you! The squash was really good in this. :)

  2. oooh! you love blue corn chips, too, eh? they are so darn good! and it's kind of ironic- i've been eating a VERY similar dinner lately. it's so good!!

  3. This would be awesome over quinoa! I love simple veggie filled dinners like this- perfection :)

    1. I made a similar type of thing with quinoa as a "burrito bowl" and Matt proclaimed it the "best meal ever", so I'll take that as a win!

  4. Nachos are mine and Chris's weakness. We become savages, each of us scrambling to scoop up the best bite with a little bit of everything on it. It's so unattractive, yet so GOOD! This looks like something we would tear apart in seconds! Yum!

    1. Oh my gosh, I am right there with you. That perfect nacho bite!
