  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons chorizo seasoning
  • 1 (14 ounce) bag tortilla chips thick cut
  • 3 cups muenster cheese freshly grated
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper diced small
  • 1/2 white onion diced small
  • 3/4 cup black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
  • 4 green onions slice (divided)
  • cilantro minced, for serving
  • plain nonfat greek yogurt or sour cream, for serving
  • avocado smashed, for serving
  • hot sauce for serving


  • Preheat your oven to 325°.
  • In a medium sauce pan, cook the ground chicken until no longer pink. Drain liquids that accumulate, if any at all. Then season with chorizo spice blend and set off to the side.
  • In a deep sided pan, place a layer of tortilla chips down. I’m using an 10×10 cake pan and will link it below in the recipe printable.
  • Sprinkle with some of the shredded muenster and half of the seasoned ground chicken.
  • Top with some black beans, peppers, green chiles, half of the light green parts of the sliced green onions (saving the dark green for garnishing), half of the tomatoes and white onion.
  • Then top with a second layer of chips, some of the cheese, remaining chicken, black beans, peppers, onions (both white and green) and green chiles.
  • Lastly sprinkle with the remaining shredded muenster and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in your preheated oven. I leave off the tomatoes purely because I like the pop of color when serving.
  • Once baked and the cheese is melted throughout, top with remaining tomatoes, the dark green parts of the onions and minced fresh cilantro.
  • Serve these black bean chicken chorizo nachos with plain nonfat greek yogurt (or sour cream), guacamole and a smoky chipotle hot sauce.
