Topping the party nachos is almost as much fun as eating them.  I keep it simple with smashed avocado (guacamole), some fat-free Greek yogurt and some chopped green onions. 

To lighten this dish up even further, I started using 99% fat free turkey (Don’t worry about it being dry. By the time you add the tomato paste, veggies and the toppings, it is just delicious.). I switched to fat free Greek yogurt in lieu of sour cream years ago. (One of my greatest substitution discoveries.) My preference is the FAGE brand but use your favorite.  I call this dish one of my secret weapons.  When I’m really craving those bar snacks and those delicious appetizers, I know I can make these, cut out all the unnecessary fat and have a delicious, portion controlled appetizer or snack.  I serve these all the time and no one has ever accused me of serving “diet food”.  You could also serve some salsa with these and of course, full fat sour cream.


Party Nachos

When you just want a couple of nachos or you want to serve them as individual appetizers, this recipe is a great one to get the party started. With built in portion control, each chip is individually loaded with the good stuff. Using 99% fat free ground turkey, fat free greek yogurt and lots of veggies, you can create a healthier version of that traditional platter of nachos we've all grown to love.
