If you’re fortunate enough to be home for this weekend’s Super Bowl game, here’s an easy recipe that’s great for your celebration without ruining your diet.
32 baked, low-fat tortilla chips
2 sprays cooking spray
6 oz. lean ground beef (93/7)
1/2 tsp dried oregono
1/2 tsp table salt
3/4 cup canned diced tomatoes, with adobe (smoky flavor) or chipotle (hot)
2/3 cup canned refried black beans
1/2 cup low-fat, shredded cheddar or crumbled queso blanco
1/2 cup scallions or onions, finely sliced
2 medium jalapeno peppers, finely minced
- Preheat broiler to high. Arrange tortilla chips on a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer but close together; set aside.
- Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over a medium heat. Add beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat as it cooks, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with oregano and salt; stir in tomatoes and beans. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 5 minutes.
- Spoon beef mixture over chips; sprinkle with cheese. Broil until cheese melts, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from broiler; sprinkle with scallions/onions and jalapenos. Yields 4 nachos per serving.
