  2. In a skillet on the stovetop over low heat, drizzle some olive oil in the pan.
  3. Add in onions, and peppers and sauté until onions are slightly golden and peppers are soft.
  4. While the onion and pepper mixture is cooking, spray a 2-quart Pyrex dish with extra virgin olive oil spray.
  5. Arrange chips in the Pyrex dish. Top with a portion of the cooked peppers and onions, black beans, tomatoes, avocado, and shredded cheese, and some cilantro sprigs.
  6. Repeat layers of chips and other ingredients until you’ve used all the ingredients.

**For the peppers in this recipe, you can also use Trader Joe's Fire Roasted Bell Pepper and Onion mix (found in the frozen foods section). If you do, still saute the 1 c. fresh diced onions with the pepper mix. Serve with my Chunky Guacamole, Search: Chunky Guacamole at or your favorite salsa!
