Who doesn’t love nachos?!
This was a delicious and easy alternative to our typical comfort food! Regular nachos= carbs on carbs on fat on fake cheese. Not filling, and 0% percent nutritious. My version is obviously a lot more fiber, and less cheese- but filling and so tasty!
It’s a combination of a few different ideas I’ve seen, so you may play around with your recipe (I’m not that great of a cook, I “clean up” other peoples’ recipes and they usually turn out pretty good).
I used a serving of the Late July chips from Costco. They’re definitely a healthier chip option than most- with some extra protein and whole grains.
For the sweet pork, I followed this recipe:
1/2 cup tomato sauce (no sugar added)
1/2 TBSP onion powder
1/2 TBSP garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp chili powder
pinch of cayenne
2 packets stevia
brown sugar bourbon seasoning, to taste (maybe 1/2 TBSP… yes this has trace amounts of sugar. No biggie).
(I would have added hot sauce, but since my kids were eating it, I did not).
I put this lean pork tenderloin in the crock pot with the sauce, till cooked through.
I just layered chips, low fat cheese, the pork, corn, tomatoes, and jalapeños on a parchment paper-lined cooke sheet, then drizzled with this dressing and S&P. Cilantro would be pretty and tasty on top too!
Healthy eating, friends, does not mean skipping out on your favorite comfort foods. You simply have to find a more nutritious way to enjoy it =)
