This is a dish that was introduced to me when I met my mother in law. It is a kind of twist on nachos and taco salad but a family favorite and one that is kid friendly.
Combination of nacho with a taco salad twist
Heat the refried beans in a pan. Stir occasionally until texture is smooth.
Put the olives, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, avocado, cheese, salsa, fritos, sour cream and jalapenos in separate bowls.
To assemble just put fritos for bottom, I crush mine. Top with beans and the toppings of your choice.

Instant Pot Vegi Chili
Flavorful chili that is quick and easy to make.
Combine the beans, tomatoes, ketchup, garlic, taco seasoning, red onion, chilis, broth in your instant pot. Stir thoroughly. Program to bean/chili and let cook.
About 10 minutes before the pot is done pour olive oil in skillet. Brown your vegi crumbles. I like them to be a bit crisp for texture. Once the chili is done pour the crumbles in and stir.
Ready to serve and top with your garnishes.
*For the vegi crumbles I used the Smart Ground Mexican
You could easily make this in a crockpot as well.
If you wanted to use ground chicken, turkey, or beef you could substitute as well.
This is an instant favorite dish. Vibrant in color and flavor. Originally found on The Roasted Root.
Citrus Roasted Beet Salad
Heat oven to 350.
Cut stems of beets. Usually when I buy beets they come in a bunch of two or three so I cooked all of them. Wash the beet and place individually in a tinfoil bowl you create around the beet. I put some olive oil on each one. Cook 30-50 minutes. Should be tender when you put a knife through it. Once cooked use a knife to take skin off and then slice into wedges.
Place Arugula, spinach, beet, clementine, orange, avocado and pistachios in bowl.
Mix the salad dressing together. Pour over the salad and mix well. Ready to serve.
