Tex-Mex Chicken Nachos for Your Flat-Belly Diet

Avocados in this Tex-Mex Chicken Nachos recipe are high in monounsaturated fats, making them a good belly fat fighter. If you're not a black bean lover, you can use pinto beans in this recipe instead.

This dish is a great appetizer for any get-together. Simply transfer baked nachos onto a plate and pass around the party.

Prep time: 15 minutes
