How To Make Healthy Nachos

Baseball and basketball games, state fairs and slumber parties. When I think of those kinds of events the first food that comes to mind is nachos. As a kid, whenever we were out and I had the chance to ask for something we wouldn't make at home, nachos were one of the not-so-healthy things that I wanted. I mean what kid doesn't like crispy tortilla chips piled high and covered with layers of melted cheese?

The ball park version nachos gets a pretty low score when it comes to health, but that doesn't mean you can't play around with the idea that nachos can still be a darn good balanced meal. This quick video will show you how easy it is to do that!

    Nacho night is our kids favorite night at home... we make all the fixings separately (beans, beef/turkey, cheese sauce, etc.). Then we mix the fixings in our bowl and dip the chips in. I like it so much better that way... though I guess that wouldn't work as well for a crowd and watching the game. Thanks for the video to refer to when game day arrives. :)

      Heaven help all of us when J and Wilzie find themselves in a room toehtger. And I think WWJD is supposed to relate to what is the most Christian thing you can do in this situation and not which one of these is the most bomb diggity and I'm spitting on it to claim it mine. Therefore, if Wilzie was going to play the WWJD card, he would get those nachos bagged and drop them off at the first homeless man he came across. Also add smarter than my husband to your CV.

    I make these all the time. I added seasoned lean ground beef and plain Greek yogurt (sour cream sub.) for more protein.
