Nacho Casserole

this may not sound like a healthy recipe but with a few healthified options these nachos are packed with fiber rich beans, protein packed chicken breasts, antioxidant bursting tomatoes (salsa), calcium loaded cheese, and oh-so-good for you fats from avocado

Nacho Casserole


6 ounces baked tortilla chips (I uses less to healthify OR you can make your own)

2 C cooked shredded chicken

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 C jarred salsa (my mom used 1/2 C salsa and 1 C spaghetti sauce)

1 C 2% shredded Mexican cheese

4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced (optional)

I added green bell peppers slices for more veggies!

avocado slices (optional, but add some great healthy fats!


Heat oven to 350F. Line bottom and sides of 13x9x2 baking dish with chips. Scatter chicken and beans over the chips. Spoon salsa over the beans and top with cheese and scallions. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve!
