It’s Friday and I really want nachos with loads of cheese and ground beef, and the works. Oh wait, I forgot, I’m really trying hard to keep the weight off and let’s just throw this out there…drop some more! So here’s my recipe for Nacho  Salad!

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz ground turkey
  • 1 oz cheddar shredded
  • 4 corn tortillas cut into 6 pieces each
  • 1 jalapeno
  • pineapple salsa
  • tossed salad
  • lite dressing
  • salsa
  • sour cream (low fat, no fat, your call)

Pineapple salsa

  • 1 cup diced pineapple fresh
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 lime juiced and zested
  • 1 roma tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper

Mexican Dressing

  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing of choice (low fat, no fat, full fat, your call)
  • Mix together, voila, you have Mexican dressing!

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. place your tortillas on baking trays covered in parchment. Spread them out.
  3. Spray them with either pam or spray olive oil( my choice). Sprinkle with a Mexican seasoning or garlic salt and paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or till golden crispy!
  5. Make the pineapple salsa by simply mixing all the ingredients together and let their flavors marinate! 1-3 hours ahead is great!
  6. Fry up the ground turkey with some Mexican seasonings. Set aside to cool.
  7. Now, place your baked tortillas/nachos on a large dinner place.
  8. Sprinkle the meat and jalapenos over the nachos. Cover with the cheese.
  9. Nuke for 1 minute or pop back in the oven to melt the cheese ( be sure you’re using an ovenable dish)
  10. Once the cheese is melted, move the chips to the sides of the plate, and fill the center with tossed salad. (lettuce, tomato, cukes, red pepper, red onion etc)
  11. Top with the pineapple salsa, avocado, sour cream, salsa or dressing.
  12. Mine came out to 11 points, it all depends on your choices, could be more, could be less! Enjoy!
