Improv Chipotle Nachos

When we go to Chipotle, I always get a vegetarian bowl. I skip the rice, and sometimes the beans, and load up on the fajita veggies (green peppers and red onions) and the pico de gallo. I skip the cheese and the sour cream, but I treat myself to the guac. Guacamole is so good for you... and so tasty! Sometimes, if I'm craving meat, I get myself a small side cup of the shredded pork.

Tonight, I decided to improvise a bit, and Improv Chipotle Nachos were the result.

  • I layered 1 1/2 servings of organic Whole Foods' tortilla chips on a plate.
  • I spread half my vegetarian bowl on top of the nachos.
  • I spread half of the side cup of shredded pork on top of the veggies.
  • I grated about 1/3 cup of 75% reduced-fat Cheddar cheese and sprinkled it on top.
  • I popped it all in the microwave for about 2 minutes.
  • A dollop of guac and a dollop of 0% fat Greek yogurt finished it off.
It was a decadent dish, better than any restaurant nachos I've had, and so much healthier. Fabulous!
