In this healthier nacho recipe, we use homemade whole wheat tortilla chips in place of store bought chips, as well as a lean ground chicken to reduce the saturated fat. While these may be better for you, remember – everything in moderation! Make this for a party or small get-together and share with friends.
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). In a frying pan over medium heat, cook ground turkey, breaking it up until it has changed colour and is no longer pink.
Add black beans, garlic, chili powder, salt, tomato paste, and water. Stir until combined. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until the mixture reads 165°F (74°C) on an instant read thermometer.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add your nacho chips to the parchment paper in an even layer.
Add bean mixture, and top with the peppers, jalapeños, green onion, and cheese.
Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Enjoy with salsa, guacamole, lime wedges, and extra veggies on the side.
