Obviously, I'm on a Mexican food kick lately. And when I say lately, I mean always. Mexican food and me is pretty much a can't stop/won't stop situation.
There are worse addictions.
Anyway. These black beans are just delicious. The creamy tartness of the goat cheese with the spiciness of the salsa is a winning combination. The chips are crisp and warm and so simple to make. The whole things is an easy, throw together meal. I mean, it's barely a real recipe. It's just upping our game with the refried bean scene. And yes, there is a scene.
Go ahead, feed your Mexican food addiction.
Homemade Tortilla Chips
8 small corn tortillas
drizzle of canola oil
Sea Salt, to taste
Cut the tortillas into quarters. Place cut tortillas on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle liberally with coarse sea salt. Place baking sheet under the broiled (525 degrees) for 6 minutes, shake baking sheet and broil for an additional 5 minutes. Keep an eye on the chips, as they can easily burn. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve with black beans with goat cheese and salsa (recipe follows).
