Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Cut turkey lengthwise into 8 strips; cut crosswise into eighths to create grid of 64 pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll each piece into 1/2-in. (1 cm) ball. Gently stir together meatballs, black beans, barbecue sauce and hot sauce to coat evenly. Spread meatball mixture on parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet; bake until meatballs are cooked through, about 20 min. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

  2. Set aside 2 tbsp (30 mL) green onions. Spread half of the tortilla chips over a parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet, then top with half each of the meatball mixture, tomatoes, cheese and green onions. Repeat a second layer with remaining ingredients. Bake until cheese is melted, about 10 min.

  3. Using parchment paper, slide nachos onto serving platter. Garnish with avocado and remaining green onions.
