FrugivoreMag.com: Red Bean Salsa Nachos with Avocado Yogurt
Posted Jan 31 2012 10:12pm
Let’s hope your New Year’s resolution includes a game plan for a gradual lifestyle change for the better. February is probably the first true challenge of maintaining healthy goals. The football weekends leading to Superbowl are exciting events to spend with friends and family. Such celebratory events have unhealthy nibbles, bites and treats. Who’s winning?
Here’s a new game plan: Instead of eliminating unhealthy traditional snacks for carrot sticks, switch out a few ingredients with healthier options. Nachos are a favorite dish served especially during football events, such as the Superbowl. It’s a versatile dish with meat, gooey cheese, tomato salsa, sour cream and other Tex-Mex ingredients. In this version, the corn chips are multigrain with flax seeds to increase the nutritional value and add a slight nutty taste. The red bean salsa is a light salad with tomatoes, cilantro and spices. Replace traditional shredded iceberg lettuce with radicchio and arugula. Sharp cheddar is a traditional choice, but experiment with crumbled Mexican Cotija or Greek Feta. Substitute sour cream with thick good quality Greek yogurt or puree an avocado and yogurt for a creamy dollop of taste (recipe below). The comment section is closed.
