Trim Healthy Mama S Nachos

I’m not sure whether this is a recipe or not… When my kids where growing up we either had homemade pizza on Friday nights or nachos. I make these so many different ways but this one is so easy, I can make these at the last minute.

My mom made nachos quite a different way than I make mine. I loved them growing up, but when there are 2 adults and 1 kid, that recipes makes sense. Her way was to use tostito round chips, frito lay bean dip and cheese. She put these on a baking sheet and topped some of them with jalapenos. She baked them in the oven until the cheese was melted. Those are really good, but time consuming.

How I make my low carb chips is pretty basic. I take low carb tortillas and cut them into triangles. I either bake them or air fry them until they are crispy. In the picture above I used organic blue tortilla chips. This meal is a trim healthy mama crossover. I had planned on making my own chips but ran out of time. Crossovers are on plan, don’t forget that. I often eat 2 or 3 a week.

Use whatever toppings your family loves. My whole family loves black olives. If I can use black olives in a Mexican style dish, they are happy. This night we had olive, cilantro, green onions, shredded cheddar, avocado and sour cream. This dish really made my night better. After a really long day, this came together so quick and tastes so good. What are your family’s favorite toppings.
