Servings
Ingredients Directions
  1. Spray large nonstick baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Cut bell peppers into 2×1-1/2-inch strips; cut strips into bite-size triangles (each bell pepper strip should yield 2 or 3 triangles).
  3. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add tomatoes, onion, chili powder and cumin. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in rice, Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro and pepper sauce.
  4. Top each pepper triangle with approximately 2 tablespoons rice mixture; sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Place on prepared baking sheets; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate up to 8 hours before serving.
  5. When ready to serve, preheat broiler. Remove plastic wrap. Broil nachos, 6 to 8 inches from heat, 3 to 4 minutes (or bake at 400 degrees F 8 to 10 minutes) or until cheese is bubbly and rice is heated through. Transfer to serving plate; garnish, if desired.
