  • 6 flour tortillas (each 7 1/2 inches)
  • Olive-oil, cooking spray

For the Salsa

  • One 19-ounce can black beans
  • 1 small tomato, seeded, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and membranes removed, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Preheat broiler. Rinse beans under cold running water. Make salsa: Place 1/4 cup black beans in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped; transfer to a bowl. Add remaining beans, tomato, scallions, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Stir to combine; set aside.

  2. Make chips: Cut each tortilla into eight wedges. Arrange on a baking tray; coat with cooking spray. Place under broiler, and bake until crisp and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer chips to a wire rack to cool. Serve salsa with chips.
