healthy homemade nachos (21 Day Fix approved!)

February 2016, 2016, Recipe - Main DishAnna LockeComment

For some reason I’ve been feeling a subtle nacho craving for the last couple of months.

I’ve never been nacho-obsessed, but there’s this little voice in the back of my head calling “nachooooooos!” I listened to it on New Years Eve, ordered the most delicious loaded volcano platter of nachos, and ate until I felt almost sick. It was glorious. But apparently it didn’t kill the I finally decided to make my own version of healthy nachos last night! I even baked my own tortilla chips, which turned out DELICIOUS.

This recipe is great for a weeknight treat or Superbowl party!

I’ve been doing the Beachbody program Hammer and Chisel (follow my journey on Facebook and Instagram), which incorporates a similar nutrition plan to the 21 Day Fix. This recipe was delicious, fun to eat, and husband approved!

Healthy Homemade Nachos

(serves 4)

Each serving: 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 green, 1 blue on the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 red onion, chopped (reserve some for toppings!)
  • ½ c salsa
  • 8 small corn tortillas

Toppings (go crazy and choose your faves!)

  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomatoes
  • cilantro
  • plain Greek yogurt
  • avocado
  • black beans
  • rice
  • cheese
  • hot sauce
  • limes
  • you get the drill

Make your own healthy chips!
Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut tortillas into quarters, and spread out on 2 baking sheets coated in cooking spray. Mist the top of the tortillas with more cooking spray or oil (I love this olive oil Misto I found at TJMaxx!) and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10 minutes, or until crispy. Keep an eye on these so they don’t burn!

Cook the filling!
In a large pan, saute the turkey and red onion (reserving a few T of chopped onion for topping) until cooked. Stir in salsa and heat through.

On each plate, assemble your nacho creation! Start with 8 chips (or 2 tortillas), and load up on toppings.If you’re following the 21 Day Fix, use your containers to measure out the meat, veggies, and healthy fats.

Top with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, cilantro, hot sauce, a squeeze of lime, and enjoy!

You could also make a vegetarian version with roasted veggies and beans, or chicken, or steak...the possibilities are endless and you better believe I'll be experimenting more with this recipe!
