Vegan nachos with black bean & avocado

Last weekend my boyfriend hosted a potluck and board game night with some friends.  While racking my brain for some healthy, tasty and easy to make snacks to for the evening, I came up with several dishes but this vegan nacho with black bean and avocado dish got wiped out by the end of the night!   

Chips are always a crowd pleaser.  They're great snacks for any fun, casual get togethers with friends and families, but more often than not, they're full of unhealthy fat, zero fibre and empty calories.  Since cutting out processed foods, I'm much more mindful about snacking and prefer sticking to organic or non-GMO brands.  Beanfields Snacks creates a variety of bean and rice tortilla chips that are all natural, vegan, gluten free and non-GMO project verified.  I was pretty chuffed when I found out that every 1 oz serving I was eating contains 5g of protein and 6g of dietary fibre. So... These chippies aren't just tasty, but pretty healthy too!
