Health(ier) Nachos

This is a favorite Friday night dish in our house.  It’s probably technically like 4 servings but this is us, so really it’s 2.  We aren’t gonna talk about the fat and calories.  Just trust that it’s less with the low fat substitutions.


  • tortilla chips of your choice (I make homemade ones)
  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2 cups black beans
  • 2 packets of sazon
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded reduced fat fiesta blend cheeses
  • 4 tablespoons low fat sour cream
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • pinch salt


  1. Brown the turkey.
  2. Add the beans, sazon, chili powder, taco seasoning, and 1 cup of water.
  3. Simmer until liquid is reduced.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Layer the chips over the bottom of 2 pie dishes.
  6. Divide the meat and bean mixture between the two.
  7. Sprinkle 2/3 cup of the cheese over each dish.
  8. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melty.
  9. Meanwhile, remove the pit and scrap the flesh of the avocados into a bowl.
  10. Add the yogurt and salsa.
  11. Mash until well combined for homemade guacamole.
  12. Remove the nachos from the oven and divide the guacamole between both dishes.
  13. Top each with 2 tablespoons of light sour cream.
  14. Enjoy!
