  • 1 bag tortilla chips (we used organic blue chips)
  • 9 oz Fontina cheese shredded
  • 2 cherry peppers diced, seeds removed
  • fresh basil for garnish
  • 1 can black beans


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Put the black beans in a pot and heat through.
  • Arrange a single layer of tortilla chips on a baking sheet. We used a pizza try.
  • With a slotted spoon, sprinkle the chips with black beans, careful not to get the juice on the chips.
  • Sprinkle on cherry peppers to taste.
  • Cover with shredded Fontina cheese.
  • Repeat with another layer of chips, beans, peppers, and cheese.
  • Bake in the oven for a few minutes, just until the cheese melts.
  • Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with chopped basil. Serve immediately.
