Caribbean Jerk Nachos

1 Tbsp. Dried minced onion
1 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
2 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
pinch nutmeg
large pinch cinnamon
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Combine all and set aside OR 4 Tbsp Caribbean jerk seasoning

2 c. white beans
2 c. grated cheese

Combine beans, cheese, and half of the seasoning mix. Sprinkle over corn chips and bake at 400 until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. lime juice.

Combine red and yellow bell peppers with lime juice and other half of jerk seasoning. Sprinkle over nachos immediately after coming out of oven so the peppers cook a little but not enough to get mushy.

Optional: Sprinkle more cheese over the bell peppers while nachos are still hot to "set" the peppers
