Nachos

Share

When I was a kid, one of my friend's mom's made nachos every time we came over after school. It wasn't something I would get at home, so it was always a special treat that was really fun to eat. I loved pulling each chip from a pile that was covered in melted cheese, beans, guacamole and jalapeños. Even though nachos seem like an unhealthy food, made responsibly with baked chips (versus fried), good cheese and fresh veggies, it's actually quite the opposite. You get protein from the beans and cheese, vegetables in the form of avocado, salsa and olives, and a carbohydrate from the chips. The best part is that you can tailor this recipe to your family's liking by adding their favorite toppings. Whether you make these as an after-school treat, for a special dinner or even for a party, nachos are always a big winner!

    LOVE it! We don’t own a microwave (yay!). ….and it never occurred to me to just stick chips and beans in the oven. I think my son will love this. (He is four and we love cooking together and watching your videos with you and Kenya too.) :)

    Nachos are my desperation meal when Hubby is away! But the kids love them, especially with my Dad’s homemade salsa and my guacamole.
