Nacho Libre's

I think meals have to be simple and realistic. I also think its fine if you have exact amounts but I know when I cook I eyeball everything.

That being said, here's a nice low-fat recipe for nachos. Doesn't EVERYONE love nachos?!?!

Extra Lean Ground Turkey (Breast)(I use Jenni-O)

Taco Seasoning

Low Fat Corn Tortilla Chips

Fat Free Chili

Spinach or Lettuce


Salsa (I like Herdez, but I dont think its available everwhere)

Fat free Cheese (I like Mexican Blends)

Fat free Sour Cream


In a non-stick pan brown the ground turkey with Taco Seasoning (add as much as you like).

Heat Chili in microwave or in a small pot.

Chop spinach or lettuce.

Spread turkey meat over chips, cover with chili, add lettuce/spinach, jalepenos, cheese, sour cream and salsa.

Simple enough right?

You could add tomatoes too if you like them (I don't!)

Why not prepare extra of everything so you can have it a few times as a quick, healthy, low-fat meal? Just heat the meat and chili and cover with toppings!

This is exactly the kind of meals I recommend to my clients to support their fat-loss goals.
