Remove 1 chile and 1 tablespoon sauce from can; reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Chop chile; add chile, sauce, beans, and tomatoes to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro. Arrange 1 1/3 cups chips on each of 6 plates.

A good vegetarian diet is likely to be
* lighter and less stressful for the body to deal with;
* more readily digested and absorbed, and therefore more nutritious;
* lower in saturated fat; and
* devoid of excess animal protein, a major cause of calcium loss, osteoporosis and other degenerative diseases.
Really like this. The filling made enough for two of us with extras to freeze. I added a bit of vegetable stock and a couple tablespoons of tomato paste to increase the sauce. Also sauteed fresh garlic with the onions and added cumin and dried oregano, while it was cooking. Tasty!
This was a great recipe - easy to assemble, a nice summer meal, and a lot of flavor. I didn't use the meatless crumbles - there was plenty of "base" for the nachos with the beans, tomatoes & veggies. We'll be having these regularly.
Very good! I don't know that, if I ate meat, I'd be able to tell the difference. Has a nice smokey spice to it which is good but not overpowering. I only added onion & ommitted the bell pepper. Served these as soft taco filling on a whole wheat tortilla w/ homemade guac. Makes alot - at least enough for the 6 servings mentioned.
