Eat Nachos. Have Abs.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen my post on this before. Here's the whole enchilada:

There are three reasons why you should make these.

1. Everybody loves chips. And this version won't set you back if you're trying to lose weight.

2. These make the perfect vehicle to transport meaty Mexican food from plate to mouth.

3. You'll get the crunch and the flavor without the other crap. Nutrition-wise, these beat Doritos by a long shot.
 

This recipe makes two servings of chips. Below you'll also find a recipe for the meaty taco bowl I eat these with.

 

Ingredients

  • 8 Small Corn Tortillas (Mi Rancho Organic Taco Sliders)
  • Coconut oil
  • Cumin
  • Salt
     

Directions

Keeping your 8 tortillas in a stack, slice the stack in half.

Then slice those halves into thirds so that you end up with six wedges. In total you should have 48 chips.

Spread the tortilla triangles out on a baking pan (lined with parchment paper if you want to eliminate clean-up time).

Spray lightly with coconut oil. Season with salt and cumin.

Bake on 400 for 7-10 minutes or until they look crisp.

 

The Meaty Taco Bowl

 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground meat
  • 1 can refried beans or black beans
  • A few giant handfuls of spinach
  • Diced green chilies, canned or prepared however you like
  • Diced tomato, salsa, or pico de gallo
  • Your favorite Mexican herbs and spices: cumin, chili powder, cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
  • Optional hot sauce, cheese, black olives, guac, or sour cream

 

Directions

Brown the meat. Cook the beans. Saute the spinach. 

Season the meat. (My rule of thumb is about a tsp salt or salt substitute per pound.) Add the other spices, liberally.

Combine the spinach and green chilies to the meat. Season the beans with spices. 

In a bowl create layers of beans, meat, salsa or pico de gallo, and cheese however you see fit. 

Top with avocado, black olives, hot sauce, or sour cream. Enjoy with your nachos.

Doritos Vs. Good Girl Fitness Nachos

One serving of Doritos is 12 chips, or 1 oz. That serving contains 18g carbs, 2g protein, 8g fat.

One serving of Good Girl Fitness Nachos is 24 chips, or 2 oz. It's twice the size of the Doritos. That serving contains 27g carbs, 3g protein, 1.5g fat. 

So if you double the serving size of the Doritos, making it the same amount as what you'd get in a serving of Good Girl Fitness Nachos, it contains 36g carbs, 16g fat, and 3g protein.
