This is a really easy way to get your nacho fix quick! Microwave-only and less than 5 minutes to throw together. While it's made for two, I'm totally not going to judge if you end up consuming all of it yourself. 


4 ounces cooked and shredded chicken (can use canned)
3 tablespoons bbq sauce 
2 ounces tortilla chips 
3 tablespoons canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup reduced-fat Mexican-blend shredded cheese
2 tablespoons light sour cream


Combine chicken and bbq sauce. 

Spread out the tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate. Top with black beans. Evenly spread the chicken mixture over the beans and sprinkle with cheese. 

Microwave for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted. Serve topped with sour cream.

slim trick. Use reduced-fat or baked tortilla chips to cut the fat down! You can also use fat-free cheese and/or sour cream if you're a calorie-counter, though I think the reduced-fat varieties are worth it in this recipe. ***Also using your favorite low-cal bbq sauce will really gear this to your own taste buds (look for ones with about 25 cals or less per tablespoon).
