Healthy Nachos & Homemade Guac

I have been on a new recipe trying kick lately.  I've been excited to cook and I have so many new recipes to share with you.

I don't know about you, but Mexican food is always a good idea at my house.  My whole family loves it and we have it on the menu at least once a week.

My husband loves traditional nachos with a big plate of tortilla chips.  I love that, but was looking for a healthier alternative for myself.  Insert: Sweet pepper chips.

Let me explain.

Cut the sweet peppers in half, cut out all the seeds and stem, was them and then build your nachos on top.  It was delicious!!

Healthy Nacho Ingredients:

Sweet peppers
taco meat
black olives
diced onion
cherry tomatoes
shredded lettuce
sour cream

Add all of your toppings on top of the sweet peppers and enjoy!

I used to be intimidated to make my own guacamole, but not any more. I made up a recipe and it was so easy.  I almost always have the ingredients in my fridge so you better believe I'll be making this recipe often.  Even my husband, who isn't a big fan of guac, loved it!

Homemade Guacamole Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado
1/4 c finely chopped sweet peppers
1/4 c finely chopped onions (yellow & purple)
1/4 c your favorite salsa
1 t lemon juice
salt and pepper

Put everything into a bowl and stir until well combined.  I like my guac fairly smooth so I made sure to stir things really well.  Best when eaten right away. 

I'm tempted to remake both of these recipes for Taco Tuesday tomorrow night!!  They were so good!


  1. We eat a lot of nachos in our house. While I just prefer the chips and cheese out of the jar, Trey likes to add taco meat, pepper, onion, salsa to his. Speaking of, that's what he ate for supper last night! I bought our chips from Aldi when we went, and I'm going to have to stock up next time because they were cheaper! :)

  2. UM. Yes!!!!! I am making these later this week!! Love all your great, simple recipes friend!

  3. We LOVE guac in our house! Thanks for sharing your recipes! Easy and delicious are what we are all about here. Hope you have a happy Valentine's week!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
