Quick and Easy Nachos!

Nachos are quite the favorite snack aren’t they? They are quick to make and easy to chow on- finger food at its best. And done the right way, they can also be healthy. Here, I use lean ground turkey, red kidney beans, tomatoes (both canned sauce and fresh whole ones), and top it off with cheddar cheese before slipping the sheet into the oven. As a side, I have a basic avocado and lime juice guacamole, sour cream, and lime wedges.

Compare this to the nachos you would get at a fast food joint or a restaurant. Chances are the two won’t even come close calorie wise. I used only two tablespoons of oil to make the whole meat and bean topping shown in the photo above. Only two tablespoons! Healthy and delicious food is possible to make, my friends, you just have to take the effort to learn how. And this is coming from a person who used to be the most laziest person in the kitchen EVER. Well, I gained a good 10 pounds from eating either processed, packaged food or restaurant food in college. After graduating, when I came home, my parents cooked amazing food for me and the pounds slipped off without much effort. A good body starts with making some effort in the kitchen, always remember that. Now, I’m trying on the chef’s hat so I can feed myself in the future, when I’m on my own again. No more late night runs to In n Out because my tummy’s grumbling. Although I still can’t resist a good cupcake when I see one. 🙂 

This is a revisited recipe, as in I have made it before, and you can find the full instructions here. Enjoy!
