Greetings Sweet Peas,
How is your day going??
Going well I hope.
I just got off the phone with the dear friend I told
you about a few weeks ago, that has been healed
of the breast cancer. It was great to get to have such
a nice long conversation with her. She is such a
sweetie and so funny too.
She still has to go thru radiation treatments soon.
They don't want to take any chances with her since
she had a very aggressive form of breast cancer.
She is in good spirits, and says they might take
a trip to Florida in the spring, so hopefully we
will get to see them, and maybe they can stay
with us a few days. That would be great to
look forward to..............
Well, Don't know about you but I love me some
nachos once in awhile, used to get them from
Taco Bell, but on very rare occasion now!!
Don't want to tempt hubby.
Found a recipe online somewhere can't remember
where but tweaked it to suit our taste, of course,
and we loved it!!
We had them for lunch one day last week, and they
were heart healthy and quite delicious and filling.
So thought you might like to give it a try yourself.
I actually liked them better than Taco Bells.
Wish I had thought to take a picture,
but oh well!
Chicken and Black Bean Nachos
Tortilla chips (blue or Yellow)
that are low in Sat. fat and have 0 trans fats.
(We use Archer Farms brand from Target,
Organic Blue corn with flaxseed tortilla chips,
and they are awesome I must say. 10 chips
for 1 gram of Sat. fat and 0 trans fats)
1- 15 oz. can of black beans, rinsed and
1 1/2-2 cups lite cheese
whatever cheese you like best
(I used colby and Jack with some sharp cheddar)
(which is usually 2% or skim milk cheese)
1 cup of shredded chicken
(I used Rotisserie Chicken)
1/2 onion diced
granulated garlic, sprinkle as much
as you like.
1/2 cup lite sour cream
1/2 cup Guacamole
(I used Wholly Guacamole)
Chopped Cilantro to your liking
I love it myself, so I put tons.
Fresh Salsa or a jarred one you prefer.
( I use my magic bullet, and dump in a
can of tomatoes, some onion, granulated
garlic, and cilantro and just a
lil squeeze of lime or lemon, let her
rip and in minutes fresh salsa to die for!)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Spread chips in a single layer on a 11 x 7
Spoon black beans on the top along with
cheese and chicken, onion and cilantro.
Sprinkle with granulated garlic to your liking.
Put in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes
until cheese is fully melted. Then remove
You can pour the salsa on top if you like
or put it in a separate bowl so you can
dip when or if you want.
Add sour cream and guacamole on top.
I put a heap of each right in the center,
then you can dip your chips, and it looks
more appetizing like that!
Thanks for coming by,
love hearing from you!!
Hugs n' Blessings,
