Healthy Nacho's!

If you love nacho's, and are trying reduce your sodium...This is the recipe for you!  Takes a little more work than pouring out a bag of salty tortilla chips!  But well worth the time!

1/2 Whole Wheat Pita - cut into triangles and toast in oven till crisp.  (if you can find...fresh corn tortilla's will work too!)
Veggies - optional, I like green onion, peppers, corn, mushrooms, etc.
Protein - optional, If you have any leftover chicken, beef or black beans.
Shredded Cheese - small handful sprinkle on toasted pita, bake till melted.

Serve with homemade salsa, and guacamole(Avocado and lime juice mixed together)
Remember portion control!  For a snack use half a pita, if you are going to make it a meal with all those optional yummy extra's use the whole pita.
Enjoy!

That's a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?!

My kids love nachoes but I limit how often I make them b/c there's just nothing healthy about them... I'll give this a try and see if they like it! Thanks!

I make my own tortilla chips too, with whole wheat tortillas. Though I do add a ton of salt, no sodium issues here. Yet.

I love your blog, I can't wait to check it out some more later. I LOVE the picture on the top with the kids!

I could go for some right now! Thanks for leaving a recipe link over at Windy Poplars! I like anything curry :-) Oh, and I just saw another commenter today mentioned a Naan recipe that you have...I'll have to go searching for that. LOVE it at the Indian Restaurants (which is our fav. food ethnicity), but have been too chicken to try it at home! Happy Friday!
