Black Bean Nachos

Serves 4
Provides 2 vegetable servings per person

2 large low-fat flour tortillas
1 15-ounce can reduced sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup canned no salt tomatoes, drained or 1 cup fresh chopped tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn kernels
½ cup sliced green onions (scallions)
2 chopped garlic cloves
2 jalapeño chiles, seeded and chopped
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ cup low-fat, low-sodium Monterey jack cheese, grated
¼ cup chopped cilantro

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly coat the tortillas with pan spray and bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
