Loaded Turkey Nachos




Weekends usually mean pizza in my house but this weekend I wanted to mix it up and I thought Nachos would make a perfect Saturday night meal. Since I am on a diet I wanted to make them somewhat healthy so I decided to use lean ground turkey and a couple other lightened up ingredients. They turned out great and you couldn't tell at all that they were lower in fat and calories!


Loaded Turkey Nachos
Serves 4
9 ww pp
Cal 399, Carbs 27g, Fat 17.5g, Fiber7g, Protein 27g

Ingredients
10 oz lean ground turkey
4 oz baked tostitos ( I used scoops)
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese
low sodium taco packet (I like old el paso)
shredded Lettuce
chopped tomatoes
chopped green onion
jalapeno slices and salsa, optional

Preheat oven to 425
Place chips on large baking sheet. Brown turkey in large non stick pan. Add taco seasoning and beans. Spoon the turkey mixture over the chips and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese melts, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the nachos from the oven, and top with remaining ingredients. Enjoy!
