  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bag (about 10 ounces) whole-grain tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream for topping (optional)


  1. Cook the Beef Mixture:
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and bell peppers, sauté until softened.
    • Add lean ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks.
    • Stir in drained and rinsed black beans, chili powder, ground cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to combine flavors. Remove from heat.
  2. Assemble the Nachos:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Arrange whole-grain tortilla chips in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    • Spoon the cooked beef and bean mixture evenly over the tortilla chips.
  3. Add Toppings:
    • Sprinkle shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese over the beef and bean mixture.
    • Scatter diced tomatoes, diced avocado, and sliced black olives (if using) over the top.
  4. Bake:
    • Place the assembled nachos in the preheated oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve:
    • Remove the nachos from the oven and sprinkle chopped fresh cilantro over the top.
    • Serve the healthy beef nachos supreme immediately with optional toppings such as Greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream on the side.

Note: You can customize these nachos by adding other toppings such as sliced jalapeños, diced red onions, or a squeeze of lime juice for added flavor. Use whole-grain tortilla chips for a healthier option with more fiber. Adjust the spice level by adding more or less chili powder and cumin to suit your taste preferences.
