We're trying to go meatless once a week, and this dish helps make those meals fun, quick and super delicious. It's a great way to use up beans and canned tomatoes from your pantry. —Cynthia Nelson, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, well drained
  • 3 to 4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 4 cups multigrain tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: Sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro and additional jalapeno slices


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix beans, tomatoes and jalapenos. Arrange chips in an even layer in a 15x10x1-in. pan. Top with bean mixture and cheese.
  2. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. Serve immediately with toppings as desired.

Test Kitchen tips
  • A little naughty gets a little nice with multigrain chips and black beans. Regular tortilla chips can be used if you want to go all out.
  • Spreading out the ingredients in a large pan helps the chips stay crunchy and evenly coated with toppings.
  • Peppers (Hot)
    Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
