Total Time: 55 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Keyword: high fiber, low sugar, nachos
Cut: Ground Pork
Cooking Method: Bake
Servings: 2


  • 12 ounces ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt (to taste)
  • 8 cups tortilla chips (unsalted)
  • 8 ounces cheese (Mexican blend four, shredded)
  • 15 ounces black beans (drained)
  • 4 scallions (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (canned, minced, or more to taste)
  • 1/2 cup salsa (plus more for serving)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium heat, cook pork, stirring and breaking it up into bite-sized pieces, until no longer pink, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat, add chili powder and salt to taste, then set aside.
  • Arrange 1/4 of chips on a large ovenproof platter or a 2- to 3-quart baking dish, then use a slotted spoon to arrange 1/4 of the pork on top. Top with 1/4 of cheese, 1/4 of beans, and 1/4 of scallions. Repeat 3 times, making 4 layers. Bake until cheese is melted and nachos are heated through, about 30 minutes (if the top gets too brown, loosely cover with foil).
  • While nachos are baking, in a small bowl, combine sour cream and chipotle. Add more chipotles to taste and set aside.
  • Top nachos with the sour cream mixture and salsa. Serve hot, with additional salsa on the side.
