Prepping for a party to watch the big game this weekend? You simply can’t forget to make nachos!

Perfectly snackable, dippable and shareable, nachos are the perfect food to serve to a hungry group of sports fans. And while you won’t win any healthy competitions with a plate of nachos, by making homemade bean nachos you can lighten the dish up and control your fat, sugar and salt levels.

The chips are a great place to start. Store-bought chips can be loaded with extra salt and other unnecessary ingredients. Frying up tortillas in a little bit of oil doesn’t only just make a chip with ingredients you can better control, but the chips are better too!

One of the big highlights of this dish, of course, is the refried bean mixture that helps hold it all together. The recipe is oh-so-easy to make and dangerously good. All you need is a jar of Randall Beans pinto beans and a few other simple ingredients.
