Nachos

Nachos

So I think we can all agree that Nachos are not usually featured in the healthy section of the menu. That’s because deep-fried tortilla chips throw the whole thing off. What most people don’t know is that tortillas are just as delicious when baked. Baked tortilla chips come out just as crispy and are a whole lot better for you than restaurant tortilla chips.

These healthier Nachos made with freshly-baked tortilla chips are a cravable snack featuring diced tomatoes, ripe avocado, and fresh lime juice. What’s better, is that they have only 258 calories per serving! We’ve topped ours with lots of good stuff, like pinto beans, jalapeños, tomatoes, avocados, and—of course—cheese! Add any other fresh veggies you want, like shredded lettuce or cabbage, radishes, or green onions.
