So, we all love nachos and as parents, we all love a quick and nutritious meal! Here is my nacho ‘recipe,’ that is sneakily healthy and oh so good!
I am fortunate in that my daughter loves veggies, but not all kids do. If you have a no-veggie eater, this may be a great way to trick them into enjoying veggies. It helps if you let them help make it.
You start by putting chips of choice on a plate and cover it in cheese. If you have shredded, that works best, but if not you can just tare a slice in pieces. I find in my microwave 45 seconds does the trick. You don’t want to cook it too long or the cheese gets hard when it cools. I like it slightly melted. it!
Next, add whatever toppings you want! We had some leftover brisket, so I heated that and topped it with everything I could find in the fridge! We also added fresh spinache, tomatillos, bell peppers, onion, picante sauce, sour cream, and whatever else we could find. The trick to get the kids to eat the veggies, or at least one you could try, is to have them help you and explain to them that sometimes things we don’t like alone, taste good when it’s put all together!
Remember to add extra cheese on the top!!! A ‘normal’ dinner plate will make even an adult stuffed! You can put anything you like on, I use whatever is in the fridge just so I can get rid of leftovers and because it always tastes great!
Other Topping Suggestions:
whole kernal corn, black beans, refried beans, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, ANYTHING you have in your fridge!!! My monkey’s friends LOVED them! Feeding teenage girls so that they are full and no longer wanting on less than 5 bucks is awesome!!! AND they thought I was the best nacho maker!!! If only they knew….
