Mexican food is popular for potluck gatherings here in South Texas, and this dish always brings "oohs" and "aahs". It's usually served as an appetizer, but is hearty enough for a main course along with a salad and Spanish rice. —Connie Bolton, San Antonio, Texas
My family loves traditional nachos, but I was looking to offer something a little different. Now they gobble up this version with ground beef, vegetables and a creamy cheese sauce. - Merry Holthus, Auburn, Nebraska.
Previously, I had made this dish with black beans and corn off the cob in the summer. Wanting to try it with fresh fall ingredients, I replaced the corn with roasted pumpkin—yum! It's also good with butternut squash. —Lesle Harwood, Douglassville, Pennsylvania
Here’s a great snack that will fill the kids' bellies before they head out to collect candy. To maintain the shape of the cutouts, spread the bean mixture with a butter knife or thin spatula. You can use any shape of cookie cutter that you have on hand.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"After ordering nachos in a couple of restaurants, I figured they would be a snap to make at home," related Donna McFarland of Eugene, Oregon. "This version, which calls for leftover roast, is also good with bell peppers added."
