Easy Healthy Grain-Free Nachos

paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free

You know that saying, “you’re never fully dressed without a smile”? I’m thinking nachos aren’t fully dressed without guac and queso, do we agree?? I’m talking a pile of guacamole in the center and nacho cheese splattered all over the place. Those are the type of nachos I am talking about.

There is something about finding the perfect chip among the bunch - equal parts peppers, chicken, guac, and queso (but we all know queso has just a liiitle more share of the chip than the others). There are only a few of these in the pile so you have to grab them pretty quick. Let’s just say sharing a platter of nachos can really test a friendship and I recommend that you avoid it when possible.

So now let’s talk chips because I know what you’re thinking…’Ansley, aren’t you like a (self-proclaimed) super hard core health foodie… Why are you telling me to eat tortilla chips?’ First, yes, yes I am. Second, these chips are grain-free, paleo-friendly, and baked with coconut oil (and Fit Peach approved!). I am an advocate for the ‘all foods fit’ mentality, however, when it comes to chips and I can find some that I thoroughly enjoy and are healthy, I’m dropping those into my shopping cart. Don’t have these chips I speak of, no problemo, these grain-free nachos would be PERFECT on top of a bed of cut up sweet potato fries 😍. You can make them yourself of buy a frozen bag of sweet potato fries and voila, sweet potato nachos coming right up!
