One of my all time favourite meals is good ole nachos! But we all know how much carbs and fat is in those flavoured corn chips plus the nachos dressing! SO here is my healthy revamped version of this delicious Mexican dish! This is the beef recipe but don’t stress vegetarians I have left some alterations for you!

Ingredients

  • 1 Packet White Tortilla Strips  (non flavoured, this is what I use click here)
  • 500g lean beef mince (vegetarians leave this out)
  • 1 can red kidney beans (vegetarians have 2 cans in total)
  • 1 Jar Passata Sauce (check ingredients to ensure no added salt + nasties!)
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 -1 tsp Chilli
  • 1/2-1 tsp Paprika
  • Greek yogurt
  • Avocado
  • Olive Oil (or lemon juice)
  • 2 Diced Tomatoes
  • Light Shredded Cheese

Method

To Make Guacamole 

  1. In a bowl mix one whole avocado with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil (alternatively you can use lemon juice)
  2. Once mixture is smooth add in diced tomato
  3. You can also add in any extras like onion and capsicum!

To Make Mexican Mix

  1. In a pan cook beef then add in your passata sauce
  2. Add in beans and stir
  3. Season mix with cumin, chilli and paprika
  4. Add extra seasoning if needed for taste!

Finish it off!

  1. On a plate place your tortilla chips evenly
  2. Add your mexican mix on top then sprinkle with cheese (go easy on the cheese!)
  3. Pop in microwave or oven (depending on what you prefer) until cheese is melted
  4. Add a scoop of guacamole and a scoop of greek yogurt
  5. Your done!!

This is a great meal to have when your craving something more than your usual meat and veggie dinner! Please tag me in your recreations!

  1. Thanks for the great healthy option for nachos. I’m trying to eat as healthy as possible and tonight my family wanted to go out to dinner, so your post helped me know how to order better. I love that you used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I may just end up skipping it all together when we go to my son’s choice of Mexican restaurant tonight. http://www.elchicomh.com/
