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!) 



Easy Hardboiled (but not boiled) Eggs!

This will just be a quick post, but I had
To share! Literally my life has been changed. I make hard boiled eggs all of the time. They are a perfect paleo protein snack. I’m in love. What I am not in love with is spending 35 hours peeling them after I’ve boiled them! I’ve tried the salt, baking soda, vinegar, poking a hole, praying, swearing, etc! 😊 So anyway to the point….

You will need:
Steamer basket
Pot w/ lid

Fill your pot with just enough water to create steam, but not submerge the eggs. Put over med-high heat with eggs in the basket and covered! Steam for about 20 minutes. (Alittle less for softer boiled eggs!) (Also, I fit 9 eggs into my steamer basket) When they’re done, run them under cold water for a few minutes to stop cooking.

The magical part is when you peel them…the shell comes right off!!!!!!!! No swearing or praying (eek!) necessary! My life has officially been made better. That’s all for now!
