Serves: 6

  • 4 to 6 ounces good-quality tortilla chips
  • 1 1/2 cups grated vegan cheddar or jack cheese
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup fresh (raw or lightly cooked) or frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • Minced fresh cilantro, as desired, optional
  • Two thinly sliced scallions, optional
  • Fresh Tomato Salsa or your favorite brand, as desired

Spread the chips out in a single layer on a large platter, or divide among two plates. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients, except the salsa, over the chips in the order given. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes, or microwave until the cheese is bubbly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once with salsa on the side.
