Sunday Dinner - 10/17/2010

With so much going on this weekend, I didn't have the energy to decide what to cook. So I went with a quick and easy dish. Turkey Nachos! Everyone loves nachos. But the are unhealthy and fattening. But with a few easy substitutions nachos become a healthy and nutritious. With the black bean & corn salsa, you can add more veg. I promise, you don't notice that the sour cream is fat free or the cheese is low fat.

Black Bean & Corn Salsa
1 can black beans, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can rotel, drained
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil

In a medium size bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir well. Allow the flavors to mix for an hour before serving.

Turkey Nachos


1lb ground turkey
1 onion
1 bell pepper
1 tbsp taco seasoning
baked lays
1/2 shredded low-fat cheese
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
black bean & corn salsa

Slices the bell pepper and onions thinly. Brown in a pan until the veg get a little color. Brown the meat in a separate plan.

Layer the chips, meat, veg, and salsa.

Sprinkle with cheese and add sour cream.

Healthy nachos? Yep. Tasty tasty.

I'm actually planning for tacos tomorrow. The boyfriend will have his regular crunchy tacos and I will have a taco salad using baked chips. Of course, fat free/low fat cheese, sour cream and all of that.
