If you know me, you know I am slightly addicted to nachos!! I just can’t help myself sometimes!! So today I was in the mood, but instead of going and having a big cheat, I decided to make a healthier, cleaner version of my steak nachos!!
PS.. This takes about 5 minutes to make if you go George Foreman route!
2 cups organic blue corn tortilla chips
2 cups lean steak cubes (I cooked on George Foreman)
1/4 cup fresh salsa
1/4 cup fresh guacamole (purchase at the grocery store or make your own! CLICK for home made guacamole recipe)
1/8 cup jalepenos
1/8 cup Plain Greek Yogurt- Use this as a healthy alternative for sour cream!
Ok so as weird as this sounds, I was never a fan of Avocados… I know most people love them and they are so healthy, but for some reason, I have a hard time with the texture! I literally have had them 2 times, which was during my 21 Day Ultimate Reset! It was a very strict plan, so I was limited on what foods I could eat, so it was included in my salads, but would never eat it alone!
It was not until another co-worker of mine who is an amazing cook, brought in this green dip…Everyone was going crazy over how “amazing” it was, but the color and texture turned me away.. All day long, I kept hearing all about this Guacamole dip, so I decided to taste just a little bit! I took 1 scoop and added it to my brown rice and lean turkey burger. I was completely blown away! That may have been a bite from heaven lol! I could not believe this entire time I was so opposed to Avocados, but really I just needed a good recipe with it!
So here it was! The most amazing dip I ever had… AND IT WAS HEALTHY!! Anytime I have a dip and it taste good, its usually not a healthy recipe.
HOME MADE GUACAMOLE DIP
1 large lime
3 roma tomatoes (chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
2/3 pint of plain Greek yogurt
1 small bunch cilantro (chopped)
1 packet hidden valley ranch fiesta dip
A few shakes of Chipotle tobasco sauce
Add avocados, Greek yogurt, cilantro, ranch dip, onion, and tobasco sauce into a food grinder ( I use a Ninja).
Add chopped tomatoes and mix.
Squeeze 1 lime on top (will help keep its color longer).
If you want the dip to maintain its color longer, the less air that touches the avocado, the longer it will stay green. You can cover the dip with a pastic wrap and refrigerate.
* Serve with whole wheat pita chips or your favorite snack/dinner!
As silly as it sounds, this was amazing with brown rice and turkey burger!
