Let’s see the steps to make spicy one-pot nachos with beans.
Chop the onion very thin. In a large skillet, cook the onions in the olive oil over moderate heat for about 5 minutes or until the onions become tender and translucent. Drain the black beans, but do not rinse them so that portion of the sticky liquid still coats the beans.
Add salt, cumin, chipotle powder, chopped tomatoes with chilis, and garlic powder to the skillet, along with the beans and the ingredients. Stir the mixture and cook it for about 10 minutes, until it thickens and the liquid no longer collects at the skillet’s bottom.
Set the oven to 350°F and start preheating it. Chop the cilantro, thinly slice the jalapeno, dice the Roma tomatoes, and grate the cheddar cheese.
You can use foil or parchment paper to line a baking pan. Distribute a single layer of corn tortilla chips across the baking sheet, being careful that the chips do not overlap. Pour half of the spicy black bean mixture on the chips, followed by half of the cheese shreds. Continue by adding another layer of cheese, black beans, and chips.
Bake the chips, cheese, and beans for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese melts completely and the edges of the chips start turning golden brown. After taking the nachos out of the oven, cover them with sour cream drizzles or dollops. On top, scatter the diced tomato, pickled red onions, jalapenos, and cilantro.
