EASY & DELICIOUS CHIP-LESS NACHOS

Hi Everyone! A few weeks ago I decided to start the F-Factor diet and have been making a ton of healthy meals! I made these Chip-less nachos after seeing them on Skinny Taste. I found that as delicious as these were, I didn’t have the time or patience to measure out all the seasonings and it was a bit too in depth for me. I decided to change up the recipe and do a few things differently and they came out SO DELICIOUS! I wanted to share this recipe with you guys since a lot of you asked me to on Instagram. I would also like to point out that I am a novice cook and not very good, so please take my advice and directions with a grain of salt…see what I did there ;)!

Ingredients:

  • Lean ground turkey (I usually get the Trader Joe’s 99.9% lean ground turkey)
  • Olive Oil cooking spray
  • 1/4 white onion
  • Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning (or any type of taco seasoning)
  • Mini Bell Peppers (sliced in half with top & seeds removed…I usually buy two small bags of them at the grocery store)
  • 1 cup-ish Low fat Mexican cheddar cheese (use as much or as little cheese as you like)
  • Parsley

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  • clean and slice the mini bell peppers in half sideways so they lay flat. Place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper
  • Dice 1/4 of a white onion
  • Heat a pan to medium and spray the olive oil cooking spray and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the ground turkey and taco seasoning (follow the directions on the package as to how to add the seasoning) until the turkey is cooked
  • Disperse the cooked ground turkey onto the sliced mini bell peppers evenly across the pan
  • Sprinkle the cheese on top of the turkey and mini bell peppers and add any toppings of your choice! Some yummy options include jalepenos or black olives
  • Pop these babies into the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until the cheese has melted
  • While the nachos cook, chop up the fresh parsley. You don’t need much, maybe a sprig or two
  • Take the nachos out of the oven and garnish with the parsley
  • EAT!

I usually serve a side of guac and salsa to go along with these nachos. They totally fulfill my mexican craving without the guilt and are super easy to make! I hope you guys enjoy! Let me know if you guys make them!
