Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil. In the pan combine cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; toss to combine.

  • Roast tomato mixture 12 minutes or until softened, stirring once. Using foil, remove tomato mixture from pan. Let tomato mixture and pan cool 15 minutes.

  • Spread beans in cooled pan. With long side of pan facing you, place blue chips in the upper left-hand corner. Arrange stripes of tomato mixture and white corn chips. Sprinkle cheese over chips. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

  • Meanwhile, stir together sour cream and lime juice. If desired, place some of the mixture in a pastry bag fitted with a small star tip. Pipe (or dollop) sour cream stars on blue chips. Serve with remaining sour cream mixture and, if desired, salsa. Serves 8.
