Sheet pan dishes are so convenient, especially on our weeknights. This Sheet Pan Bean and Corn Nachos is just one of the easy and delicious recipes from Julia Konovalova’s “The Ultimate One Pan Cookbook”. It is a tasty, flavorful snack or appetizer that cooks together in one pan and that the whole family can enjoy.
Having the opportunity to review The Ultimate One-Pan Oven Cookbook is such a timely thing for me. First, because we just recently bought a countertop oven for our basement so I can bake away more conveniently in the same place where I prepare ingredients and take photos, and second because I am loving sheet pan recipes lately.
Sheet pan meals, oh my gosh. Don’t even get me started. I bake a lot, yes, and if I can bake our meals in the oven too, and if it is one pan and walk- away assembly, then that is a double yes for me.
This sheet pan bean and corn nachos is a perfect example of a one-pan assembly that you basically put in the oven and then walk away. I place the ingredients in a pan, bake them and in 15 minutes we were munching on these tasty nachos, watching two episodes of our show in a row- a thing we only do on weekends.
But because there is nachos without a sweat, we have lots of time on our hands so it definitely felt like the weekend. Win-win.
Julia, the author of the cookbook crafted delicious one-pan recipes that I am totally so excited about. Being of Asian descent, I grew up around cooking that involves multi-steps and procedures. We love to sautee first or to boil things first, things like that.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Filipino cuisines and the depth of the flavors from the multi-cooking steps. But sometimes, my life needs something where you put everything in one pan, cook them once and dinner is done.
Don’t you feel like you need that in your life too? And you won’t even compromise flavor, that is a guarantee. Aside from this loaded, tasty bean and corn nachos, I also tried the Spicy Blackened Chickened Legs with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli, and man, there is some real depth of flavor going on there.
And that is what I love about sheet pan meals, and in this book, Julia perfectly put together recipes that pack flavor by way of using tasty, flavorful marinades and sauces, and also by using simple ingredients and accenting flavor with herbs and spices.
You have to try this easy corn and bean nachos and see for yourself. The meaty beans and corn, the melty cheese and the bright and fresh cilantro highlight the crispy chips perfectly. Your family will consume the entire pan-full in no time.
