Who wants to cook on a Friday night?!  Go for the Nachos.  Cheese, avocado, black beans, add some lean ground beef and call this dinner.

Ingredients:
  • 2 bags tortilla chips 
  • 1 can (16 oz.) refried black beans
  • 1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
  • 1 (2.25 oz.) can sliced ripe olives, drained

Spoon 1/2 the beans over the chips, then sprinkle 1/2 of the green chilies and olives over the beans. Top with 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat to make one more layer using remaining chips, beans, chilies, olives, and cheese.
