DAY 18: Healthy Veggie Nachos

When I come home from work/school I am always ready for a snack, and I'm always looking for healthier alternatives.

  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 jar tomatillo salsa
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 large bag of baked pita chips 

The Prep
Step 1: Cook the broccoli in a pot of boiling water with salt for about 3-4 minutes.
Step 2: Saute the onions in EVOO until soft. Then add the black beans, tomatillo salsa and season with S & P.
Step 3: Drain the broccoli and toss it with the beans and onions.
Step 4: In the meantime, bring the chicken stock to a boil, then remove from heat and add the cheese.
Step 5: Layer a serving plate with pita chips and top with the broccoli mixture. Then drizzle with the cheddar cheese sauce.
