This is one of my go-to recipes when I don’t really feel like cooking but I need a meal. It also works when I just want something salty and cheesy and doesn’t feel like diet-food.
I love nachos. Who doesn’t? But the pub-style nachos loaded with ground beef, sour cream and guacamole just won’t work. Unless, of course, that’s all I eat for an entire day. This is my version and they’re just yummy.
15 Baked Tostitos Scoops
2 ounces of fat-free cheddar, shredded (or one ounce of regular cheddar)
1/2 cup fat-free salsa (most brands are fat-free)
2 tbsp. reduced-fat sour cream
sliced pickled jalapenos
Arrange Scoops cup-up on a plate and top with grated cheese. Microwave until cheese melts, approx. 1 – 2 minutes. Top with sour cream, salsa, and jalapenos. This recipe is 8 Weight Watchers PointsPlus points. To add extra protein, brown 4 ounces of ground turkey and add 2 tbsp taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water. Simmer until moisture evaporates and add to nachos while hot. This will up your points to 11 per serving but really makes a meal.
So if you’re looking for a healthy snack or meal that feels naughty, but really isn’t, try these … and the bonus is you won’t feel icky after eating them.
