FOOTBALL FOOD EVERYONE WILL LOVE.

Last Saturday I competed at a Crossfit competition with a group from my gym and the it lasted the entire day.  We had a great time cheering for each other and seeing some pretty impressive athletes perform.

The next day we went to a friend’s house to watch the Bengals game, and I was in charge of bringing an appetizer.  Unfortunately I had planned on running to the grocery on Saturday to pick up the ingredients for the appetizer, not realizing that the competition would run so late.

NACHOS ARE THE BEST APPETIZER FOR A GROUP!

My goal was to bring nachos, one of my favorite appetizers, its one of those dishes loaded with layer upon layer of flavor, but can also be loaded with layer upon layer of calories.  It is a great dish to serve at a party, while tailgating or just cause you love nachos.  Really who doesn’t love nachos?  Nobody!

NACHOS READY IN 7 MINUTES!

Being short on time, I ran to Walmart to pick up Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips as well as some fresh ingredients to use as toppings.

I made a simple chipotle lime sauce to top the chicken strips and add a bit of smoky spicy flavor.  I used a Mozzarella and Parmesan shredded cheese mix that offers fewer calories than the traditional cheddar, without compromising flavor.  Using black beans {rinse to lower sodium count} gives you a boost of fiber and protein.  Then I layered on red onion, sweet corn, spicy jalapeno, avocado and cilantro.

EFFORTLESS TO ASSEMBLE AND COOK.


 A few minutes under the broiler and you have your perfect nachos with layers of healthy ingredients that offer tons of flavor. #everydayeffortless

When I popped the nachos down at the party everyone dove right in, raving about the spicy fresh flavor.  Let’s just say the nachos were a huge hit and everyone asked for the recipe.  They were shocked when I told them it took me less than 10 minutes to prepare and with a few simple replacement ingredients you end up with a lighter version of the original.
