I know you’re here for the clean eating nachos…

But I need to tell you a story first. This blog was born after the birth of my fourth child. I discovered clean eating after years of sugar addiction and binge eating disorder. I started this blog for accountability; support; and to help others who found themselves in a similar position. Fast forward five years – our sixth child was born in September and after a stressful-ish pregnancy, I’m committed, once again, to clean eating! I’ve managed to lose almost 40lbs since the baby was born and feel so much better! I am looking forward to dusting off this blog and bringing you, once again, the need-to-know info about clean eating and whole body health. Let’s break free from bad habits, together and commit to be fit!

Now, about those clean eating nachos….

I love nachos as much as the next girl. I love them piled high and loaded down with everything possible that could come on a nacho. I also love them with super greasy chips {confessions of a former binge eater, y’all}. Now, clearly, nachos don’t fit the clean eating bill. However, a friend of mine {thanks, Amanda!} sent me a recipe for clean eating nachos a couple weeks ago. I love the base of the recipe and {while I’m sure the original version is delicious} I made it with what I had available. Clean eating nachos don’t involve chips, but I promise – you won’t miss them!! Neither will your arteries. 🙂 Let’s just cut to the chase and break it down.

Clean Eating Nachos

What you need:

  • Sweet Mini Peppers {they come in a bag and are available at most groceries}
  • 1-2lbs of ground turkey
  • Taco seasoning {packaged or make your own}
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1/2 large diced onion
  • 1 can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 cup {or more if you please} shredded cheese – pick your fave!
  • Sweet Mini Peppers {they come in a bag and are available at most groceries}
  • Olive oil salt and pepper.

What you do:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350
  • Grab a sheet pan and line with foil
  • Wash and slice peppers, removing any seeds. Lay flat in one layer on the baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Brown and drain turkey, season with taco seasoning, then layer over peppers.
  • Layer all other ingredients: beans, chilis, onion, and top with cheese.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is nice and melty and peppers are soft.
  • Top with other favorites: sour cream, hot sauce, salsa, pico, guac, olives, etc.
  • Enjoy!!
