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.
