Guilt Free Nachos

12 May

I am in love with these nachos & they are truly guilt free.  They are a perfect snack & people who aren’t watching what they eat will love them too!  The idea for this recipe comes from pickyeaterblog.com but I’ve changed it slightly to make it even more guilt free.

Ingredients:

  • Organic, real corn tortilla chips, I used yellow & blue tortilla chips & look for chips with as few ingredients as possible (corn, oil, salt) or try using my Homemade Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips
  • Veggies, I used cherry tomatoes & white onion
  • Top with plain Greek yogurt, the original recipe calls for fat free sour cream, but Greek yogurt tastes nearly identical & contains more nutritional value, if you choose to use sour cream my favorite brand is Daisy (opt for the Light Sour Cream)
  • Cheese, this is where most of the calories are so don’t pile on the cheese, use 1/4 cup per serving (or 12 chips) & use a light cheese
  • Black Refined Beans, look for organic & added jalapeños or peppers is okay, I prefer it
  • Taco Seasoning, I’m addicted to Trader Joe’s taco seasoning, otherwise look for a low sodium taco seasoning
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small pot heat black refined beans & taco seasoning together over medium heat.
  3. Cover baking sheet with tin foil to make the cleaning process easier & lay out chips.  Add beans, onions (or other veggies you want to cook) & cheese.
  4. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted & bubbly.  While nachos are cooking chop up your tomatoes.
  5. When nachos are done top with tomatoes & Greek yogurt.
These are so delicious, easy & when using healthier substitutes, GUILT FREE!
