Veggie Fajita Sheet Pan Nachos are made extra flavorful with Bush’s Cocina Latina Beans.
My family loves fajitas…especially since we’ve started adding Bush’s Beans to them. You may remember back in 2012 when I first added pinto beans to fajitas. Adding beans to fajitas was a total game changer! They add such substance and flavor to one of our favorite meals. You won’t find us making fajitas without beans again.
That’s why when I decided to make some Veggie Fajita Sheet Pan Nachos, I knew that Bush’s Beans had to be a part of it. If we thought regular fajita with beans included was good, Fajita Sheet Pan nachos with beans? Out of this world!
You all know I’m all about easy recipes, which is one reason versatile sheet pan recipes are such a hit around here. This nacho recipe is mostly cooked outside of the sheet pan, but the whole ensemble really comes together when assembled on the sheet pan and put in the oven. The flavors all meld together and become cheesy nacho goodness.
For this particular recipe I decided to use Bush’s Cocina Latina pinto beans to bring authentic flavor to the fajita nachos. Bush’s Cocina Latina beans is often a staple in most Mexican dishes I make. As a side or an ingredient, these beans are a must addition when I’m looking for an authentic Mexican cuisine experience.
