Pepper Chip Nachos!

Welcome to the New Year all!! Is everyone on their challenges or cleanse and detoxes after that holiday??? Well I am as well! A little 21 Day Sugar Detox to freshen up! This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy food while cleaning up your act! For example, nachos…total yummy comfort food right?! But do you want to eat a whole bag of delicious blue corn chips with it?! (Yes!) JK… No, is the correct answer. (Sadness) 😦 With all that being said… You will NOT be missing out with this dish! 

Pepper Chip Nachos:

about 4 servings 

5 med size peppers, cut into thick strips
1 lb ground beef

1 avocado, cubed

1 can olives, sliced

3 scallions, sliced

1/2 cup salsa

1 cup cheddar cheese, optional

Salt & pepper, to taste

1 tsp each of, garlic, onion, paprika, chili, cumin, or to taste. (I like extra cumin!)
Preheat oven to 400. 

Heat some olive oil in a pan over med heat. Add ground beef and seasonings until thoroughly cooked. Set aside. On a large parchment lined baking sheet, arrange your pepper “chips” in a single layer. Layer the ground beef on top of the peppers. Then add the salsa on top of that. Then it’s topping time! Add olives & cheese! Bake for 10 minutes until cheese melts. Remove from oven and add scallions and avocado! Enjoy with some more salsa, or Guac…or sour cream if you’re gettin crazy. (I get crazy..)

You’ll never think about a blue corn tortilla chip again! (LIE!)
