We’ve been enjoying this awesome Tortilla Party Bowl for a long time now… it kind of really goes with our movie nights or when friends come over. It’s naturally gluten-free and vegan without putting any extra effort in… and it’s just a great party dish – AND – a great Super Bowl dish ~ just saying! ;)
TORTILLA PARTY BOWL
(gluten-free/ wheat free and dairy free/ vegan healthy recipe)
- 1 bag of organic corn tortilla chips*
- 1 large organic tomato
- 1-2 avocados
- 1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained (divided into 1/2)
- 1/2 – 1 cup dairy-free cheddar cheese, shredded (Daiya)
- 1-2 chili peppers, chopped fine (optional)
- 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
- 1 cup salsa – to serve on the side
Directions for baking : Preheat oven to 350 F. Layer an oven-safe dish with a generous layer of tortilla chips. We used about 2/3 of a large family size bag. Spread the cheddar cheese – go for a good even layer all over. Then spread 1/2 the black beans all over evenly as well. Then chili peppers, if using.
Switch the oven to Broil and pop in the tray into the middle rack for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with fresh ingredients : spread chopped tomatoes, left over black beans, avocado (sliced or cubed), green onion and cilantro (if using). Serve with Salsa on the side. If you want to incorporate the salsa right into the mix, layer it as the first topping once the dish is removed from the oven.
*Corn tortilla chips may still have wheat as an ingredient. So if you must eat gluten-free be sure it says Gluten-free right on the package to be safe. Also, always get Organic Corn (anything) as corn is one of the top GMO foods out there!
YES! It’s SO good! That’s why I had to share this today…. we usually make it quick (because it really is quick to make up and bake!) and it’s always at night… and night time is not great for food photography – - so I never had a chance to shoot it for you all…. until now! ;)
Umm…. I miss out on a lot of recipes because I can’t get good photos of something. It’s true. It’s my nature to just do and share THE best. It’s kind of not the best habit – if you’re a perfectionist, you’ll know what I mean ;)
Not only is it quick to do and to bake… but it’s also really quick to eat! You may want to have more ingredients around in case you need an extra party dish serving.
If you need a healthy party dish for this Sunday’s Super Bowl – this Tortilla Party Bowl is your dish! (see, gluten-free and vegan recipes don’t have to be hard to do ;))
Happy Game Day!!!
