Ingredients

6 scallions (white part only), thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 med. jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp. salt-free Southwestern seasoning blend (optional)
4 cups (about 28 chips) baked tortilla chips (such as Guiltless Gourmet)
3/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (such as Cabot's 75% reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese)
1/2 large tomato, seeded and diced (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup sliced, pitted black olives (sliced into thin rounds)
2 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, coat a small skillet with cooking spray. Add the scallions and sauté over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeño pepper, and, if desired, Southwestern seasoning blend. Sauté for 2 minutes more. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
  2. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange the tortilla chips close together on the baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the chips with the cheese and scallion-garlic mixture. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, until the cheese melts. Add the nachos to a serving platter, and top with the tomato, black olives, and cilantro.
