Healthy Take on Chilli Beef Nachos

IMG_1594

So I was at home a week ago & had the yummiest nachos ever in a local restaurant. I didn’t expect them to be the healthiest but I was definitely craving them on my return to Bahrain! So, as I do I decided to try a healthier, lower-calorie version of them & I must say they weren’t far off the real deal! 😀 

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 Low-carb tortilla wraps (I used Tumaro’s brand-only 60kcals per wrap)
  • Chilli Beef (recipe on the blog under Chilli Con Carne-can switch out the Kidney Beans for Black Beans for a more Mexican vibe 😛 )
  • Home-made Guacamole (see recipe below)
  • Fage 0% fat Greek Yogurt
  • Low-fat Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • Olive oil or low-cal spray
  • Seasoning of choice (Chilli, BBQ, Garlic)

Directions:

  • Pre-heat the oven to around 180-200 degrees celsius.
  • Cut wrap into triangular shapes similar to nacho chips
  • Spray/Drizzle oil on a baking tray, place mini triangular wraps on the tray, making sure they aren’t touching.
  • Spray/Drizzle with oil on top & season well with desired flavour.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden & crispy.
  • While ‘nacho chips’ are baking, prepare the chilli beef according to recipe (few recipes back on the blog).
  • Prepare home-made guacamole by mixing the below ingredients well:

-1 avocado, mashed

-4-5 mini baby tomatoes, chopped

-1/2 small onion, chopped finely

-juice of 1/2 lime

-salt/garlic salt to season

  • Serve greek yogurt in a small bowl, as well as guacamole & chilli beef separately.
  • Remove ‘nachos’ from the oven.
  • Split into 1 large or 2 small plate & sprinkle mozzarella on top.
  • Melt the cheese under the grill & voila!!
