Generally speaking, nachos can be high in calories, saturated fat, and sodium, with most nachos dishes providing close to 2,000 calories, and they can easily be considered a meal, even when shared.
So how can you make your home-made nachos healthier?
Use baked tortilla chips instead of fried
Go light on the cheese – or use a lower fat cheese
Load the nachos with tons of fresh or grilled veggies
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different toppings such as grilled/roasted chicken, cooked ground chicken or turkey instead of beef, black beans or lentils, cooked mushrooms, and cooked zucchini.
Use baked sweet potatoes slices instead of tortilla chips
Dip nachos in salsa and Plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream
