Easy meal preparation is where I am at with summer school in full swing and running in a variety of directions with kids and their never ending list of activities.
Nacho's are quickly becoming a staple on my menu of easy recipes. The key for me is finding new and creative ways to reinvent an oldie but goodie. I know I sound like a broken record but we have slowly been cutting back on our meat consumption and replacing our decision with more beans, rice and vegetables. Insert Charlie Brown and his wha wha wha blah blah blah voice.
Cabbage on nacho's might sound crazy, and well, maybe it is. I think it's refreshing and adds so much color to an already bright dish.

Black Beans--RECIPE HERE (Use can if that is all you have)
