Cinco De Mayo, or any day with these healthy loaded nachos loaded with protein and fiber. Using lean ground turkey mixed with flavorful black bean dip, this lighter recipe takes a classic appetizer that’s usually over 1200 calories in most chain restaurants, and makes them under 400 calories. I have hundreds of ground turkey recipes, it’s my favorite protein to use to lighten up some of my favorite dishes! You might also like my loaded Nacho Chicken Tostada or my Low-Carb Mini Bell Pepper Nachos.

I love nachos, who doesn’t? That being said, these lighter nachos don’t disappoint!! We had them for dinner but this is also great for lunch or as an appetizer. This recipe was inspired by Rocco Dispirito’s cookbook, Now Eat This

. I made some adjustments to his original recipe and it was DELICIOUS. High in fiber and lower in fat and super easy to make.

How To Make Loaded Nachos Healthy

  • Baked chips. Start with baked tortilla chips instead of fried as your base.
  • Use lean protein such as lean ground turkey or chicken.
  • Add beans for fiber. Here this uses a fat-free black bean dip which adds flavor without spending too much time cooking.
  • Top it with a fresh element at the end. Pico de gallo is made with all fresh vegetables, lime juice and cilantro that adds tons of flavor, be sure you drain it so you don’t get your nachos soggy. To save time you can also buy it pre-made.
  • Use less cheese. Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese but with all these toppings, it’s easy to use less and not miss it.
  • Portion control. Weigh out your chips and bake each portion separate so you don’t eat double the portion.
