I mentioned yesterday that I started another round of Whole 30. I’m always looking for new recipes and ideas to avoid getting stuck in a rut during the 30 days.
Mexican food is one of my weaknesses. I love nachos and salsa and guacamole and queso and basically everything on the menu. And while I can’t have the chips or queso, I still look for ways to indulge in guacamole and salsa.
I don’t think I’ll ever find a good substitute for the queso, but I did find a great alternative to the tortilla chips.
Hello, plantain chips!
They offer a great crunch and don’t worry, they aren’t sweet at all. Sprinkled with a little sea salt, they are the perfect base for nachos.
I topped them with a few of my favorite toppings and made a quick batch of guacamole and salsa to serve on the side.
- Compliant plantain chips (purchase a compliant brand or make your own)
- ground turkey
- homemade taco seasoning (1/4 cup)
- diced tomatoes
- diced avocado
- sliced jalepeno
- optional: salsa, guacamole, onions, olives and any other complaint nacho favorites
Brown your turkey in a skillet and add 1/4 cup of taco seasoning and 2/3 cup of water. Let seasoning simmer with meat for about 5 minutes until it thickens.
