I started with a layer of these chips (chock full of flax seeds, soy and some Omega 3 essential fatty acids). I found them at my local natural foods store. (They also have a organic veggie chip that is even more delicious here).
I topped the chips with some black beans (fiber), a low fat jack cheese (less fat & calories plus calcium), and some chopped, cooked chicken strips (protein) and popped it in the microwave for about a minute. Then I topped in with some chopped tomatoes (lycophine), avocado (mono-unsaturated fatty acids), some of Prudies wonderful dressing (check it out here! with calcium and probiotics), some cilantro (phytonutrients) and a lime wedge or two to squeeze over it all (vitamin c).
Results for Nachos: Fresh, tasty and really hit the spot and so much healthier than standard nachos. Ready in about 6 minutes, including chopping time and perfect for enjoying sitting on the floor with Project Runway on television. I only used a couple of ounces of the low fat cheese but found I didn't need any more because the other toppings were so good. You could add salsa or spices but Prudie's dressing is so nicely spiced and so good, I found it zesty and flavorful enough. I feel satisfied and somewhat virtuous and I think maybe I earned a bit of dessert, but more about that in another post!
Thanks Prudy for a great dressing recipe! If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting her wonderful site, you should run by and check it out. There are lots of great recipes there.
