With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, these Creamy Salsa and Black Bean Nachos are perfect to add to your fiesta!

Appetizers are some of my favorite recipes to develop. They are generally quick and easy not to mention absolutely delicious. I’ve used Philadelphia Cream Cheese in my speedy nachos that I mix with mild prepared salsa for an incredible creamy topping. I top the tortillas with black beans and cheddar cheese which makes for a delightful creamy Mexican style plate of nachos.

    Mmm, looks so simple and delicious, Jenny! Love the Philly contest – it looks like so much fun!

  4. Lisa {smart food and fit}

    Mmmm, looks good and healthy too. I like adding plain yogurt to my salsa, I always seem to be out of sour cream!

    Looks like Big Mac sauce, but I bet it’s delicious! I don’t know if we’re celebrating Cinco De Mayo, but I’m definitely going to have these 🙂
