Very quick and simple to make, and tasted good. Will add more jalapenos next time as it needed a little kick, and may try using Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes.

I used cherry tomatoes instead of the canned, it was what I had on hand. I seeded and sliced the jalapenos per the recipe, but they weren't spicy enough for me that way. Next time I'll definitely just slice them. The rest of the toppings were perfect. Crunchy chips, cool tomatoes, a little heat from the peppers, plus the protein-packed beans. Thank you so much to Cynthia N. for her awesome recipe!
