Nachos for Dinner!!! This low-carb healthy alternative to nachos is a game changer!
Bell pepper nachos are an easy family fav! Pepper Nachos are packed with all your favorite flavors and fun toppings making them the perfect low carb family go to. Kids will even enjoy eating these, if you allow them to adjust the toppings to their liking. So we allow everyone to build their own toppings to provide a sure crowd pleaser even for the picky eaters! This recipe totally satisfies that munchy food craving in a healthy way, and great for any Fiesta or Football party!!! Load the sheet tray with colorful peppers that take the place of “tortilla chips” all topped with seasoned ground meat, melty cheese, and topped with you fun festive favorites. These crunchy peppers become perfectly tender, so you won’t miss crunch of those chips but you can enjoy these without feeling bad or guilty! Make sure to have fun with your toppings, but remember that the carbs do start adding up so keep that in mind if you’re trying to keep these nachos healthy. Other toppings include shredded lettuce, sliced avocados, guacamole, salsa, jalapenos, olives fresh cilantro, etc.
I often bake half with cheese and half without so people can have the nachos as they choose.
