How fun are these little guys!!!
Ah, nachos. A classic bar snack usually served up as a mountain of fried chips smothered in cheese…and totaling upwards of at least 500 calories.
These Bell Pepper Nachos taste like nachos (the bell pepper strips are a surprisingly good substitute for tortilla chips) but are actually healthy. They’re loaded with veggies, packed with lean protein, and they’re less than 300 calories a serving! Give them a try and tell us what you think.
In the recipe below, you’ll top wedges of sweet bell peppers with seasoned ground turkey, fresh pico de gallo, jalapeños, and sharp cheddar cheese (yes, these bell pepper nachos still have plenty of melted cheese — we’re not monsters, you know). You’ll want to devour them as soon as you pull them out of the oven! Do it, and you’ll be chowing down on two full servings of veggies.
If you want to add a little more flair to your bell pepper nachos, top them with diced avocado or a dollop of low-fat Greek yogurt.
Eat up and enjoy!!!
