Need a healthyish Mexican meal or some game day snacks? I love these nachos for anytime because the toppings are endless and the flavors are delicious! Eat them with your hands or serve them on a dinner plate. Your family and friends will love it!
These nachos are a less processed option and provide a ton of nutrition with veggies, lean protein and complex carbs. I layered my nachos to have extras for lunch leftovers.
Sweet Potato: contain a good amount of fiber as well as vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese and several other vitamins and minerals. They are a bit lower on the glycemic index scale as well compared to regular potatoes.
Black Beans: are very good source of folate and dietary fiber. The also contain copper, manganese, vitamin B1, phosphorus, protein, magnesium and iron. Beans are powerhouses for nutrition!
Green Onions: low calorie, high fiber and some micronutrients including vitamin K, and vitamin C. Great way to add flavor!
Bell Peppers: Bell peppers are very high in vitamin C, and one bell pepper may provide over 100% of your daily needs.
