  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 ounce part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 ounce shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend (about ¼ cup)
  • 5 ounces multigrain tortilla chips

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add jalapeño and ½ cup onion; cook, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add flour and cumin; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add milk and water; bring to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium and gradually stir in mozzarella and Mexican cheese blend; cook, whisking constantly, until the cheese is completely melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.
  2. Arrange chips in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Top with jackfruit and the cheese sauce. Sprinkle evenly with beans, tomatoes and the remaining ½ cup onion. Top with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
