Lighter Macho Nachos

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 10


  • 6 (6 inch) fat-free flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup fat-free refried beans
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 sliced jalapeño
  • 1 (15 oz) can vegetarian chili with beans
  • 3/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions


Preheat the broiler. Stack the tortillas and cut into quarters. Arrange the tortilla pieces in one layer on the broiler rack; spray the tortillas lightly with nonstick spray. Broil 6 inches from the heat, turning frequently, until crisp and golden, 3-4 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425º. Transfer half the tortilla chips to a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spread 1 teaspoon of the refried beans on each chip. Sprinkle with half the onion, half the cheese and half the jalapeño. Spoon half the chili over top. Repeat layering with the remaining chips, beans, onion, jalapeño and chili. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over top.

Bake, uncovered, until the filling is hot and the cheese is melted, 12 – 15 minutes. Top nachos with sour cream, tomato and scallions. Serve at once.
