Spicy Black Bean Nachos with Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce

Keep the beans close by so you have the option of dipping the chips in both the beans and the Avocado Salsa Verde. Using two chipotles in adobo gives the beans real kick. If you want a milder version you can use a single chipotle or even ½ of a chipotle. Note that some of the heat will get diluted once you combine the beans with all the fixings, so my version tastes extra spicy right out of the blender. Feel free to use cheddar cheese instead of Monterey Jack. Or both! More info on chipotles in adobo here You can use canned tomatillos for the Avocado Salsa Verde and still get a stellar result. Note that if you are using canned tomatillos you can skip roasting them as it won’t have the same effect. You can substitute a serrano for the jalapeno in the Avocado Salsa Verde.
