Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Preheat oven to 475°.
Saute onion and garlic for 5 minutes in olive oil over medium heat. Reduce heat. Add black beans and Tabasco sauce. Stir in honey. Cook for 10 minutes stirring often. In a medium bowl, mix together tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and scallions. Place tortilla chips evenly on baking sheet. Place black bean mixture over chips, followed by tomato mixture and grated cheeses. Bake for about 5 minutes, until cheese melts. Top with avocado slices, cilantro and sour cream.
