Nacho Scoops

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.
