Healthier Nachos

273864583_10100220863691146_9160167558039307165_n

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with these!!! They’re so simple to put together and so filling!

You can tweak them to include your favorites but here’s how I make them.

Slice up 3 small corn tortillas into triangles (I like the Mission street taco gluten free corn tortillas).

In a skillet saute your tortillas until they start to crisp up.

Layer on a baking sheet your tortilla chips, shredded cheese, beans of your choice (I used chickpeas but black beans or pinto beans would be great), lean ground beef, turkey or chicken breast, sliced up tomatoes, shredded carrots, and shredded iceberg lettuce.

Pop into an oven at 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes until your cheese is melted and enjoy.

I sprinkled with Trader Joe’s everything but the elote seasoning but use any seasoning you like.

Do you love nachos too?!

Crockpot Burrito Bowls

Ingredients:ย 

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1ย can diced organic low-sodium diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • chili power, sea salt, red pepper flakes &ย paprikaย to your liking (I just did a sprinkle of each)
  • 1 can organic black beans (rinse & drain)
  • 1 cup uncooked jasmine rice
  • 1/2 cup frozen organic sliced bell peppers (I love the Whole Foods version)
  • 1/2 cup frozen organic roasted corn kernels (also Whole Foods Brand)

Directions:ย 

  1. In your slow cooker layer your chicken breasts, tomatoes, chicken broth and seasoning.
  2. Cook on low 3 hours.
  3. Add in your rice, beans, and veggies and continue to cook on low another 2-3 hours.
  4. While cooking, stir occasionally to make sure the rice cooks evenly and all the way through, if needed you can add more chicken broth during this process.
  5. That’s it! Portion into your lunch servings and let cool completelyย before storing.

If you’re not home while prepping to stir the rice you can also add in pre cooked rice at the end. Simply add in your beans and frozen veggies for the last 30 minutes of cooking.
