Black Bean Nachos

It's easy to make warm, gooey, restaurant-style nachos in just a few minutes in the microwave. Adding extra toppings such as black beans makes nachos not only more nutritious, but also more satiating. Kids will fill up quicker and eat less if the chips are topped with a healthy protein such as black beans.
