You know those nights where you have no idea what to make for dinner? Typically, I always have an idea of what to make (hello, I'm a recipe developer!) but the last couple of weeks have seemed tougher to think of ideas. We are going through more food than ever with my 10 month old eating like a horse and my 3 year old has always been a huge eater. I felt in a bit of a food rut which is so odd for me so I asked my husband to take over cooking one night and to plan the meal himself.

He came up with the most spectacular meal: Loaded Sheet Pan Nachos. He sauteed bell peppers that he chopped into tiny little cubes, black beans, tomatoes and other veggies with Mexican seasonings. Then, he baked it all on top of a bunch of tortilla chips with cheese. We topped it with salsa, hot sauce and plain Greek yogurt. It was the best dinner. My baby could eat the beans and veggie mix along with a quesadilla and my daughter loved that we were having chips for dinner. I forgot about this meal but this is something that we like to make frequently and we almost always have all of the ingredients on hand. Definitely a family favorite.

What I like is that you can totally customize it. Almost any meat would be good on here. I used shredded steak that I had on hand that I cooked in the slow cooker for this version. Chicken or pork would be great too. Or keep it vegetarian with black beans or pinto beans. You can top this with corn, avocado, sauteed diced zucchini, etc. The possibilities are endless. We make it with whatever we have on hand and need to use up.

Loaded Sheet Pan Nachos can be eaten for dinner or for an appetizer. We have made these before when we have people over for an evening snack. It is kind of a fun dish because everyone can gather around the pan and grab chips and hangout. This pan of nachos is actually quite nutritious. Black beans are rich in protein and fiber. The veggies are loaded with vitamins and fiber. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and kept it not too heavy on the cheese.
