If you love nachos (let’s be honest, who doesn’t!?) then this lightened up, packed with protein nacho recipe, that is sure to satisfy allll your nacho cravings..is for you!


  • 2-3 bell peppers (whatever color pepper you desire);

 Cut in half then length-wise, to create a scoop-like shape

  • Ground meat of choice: I recommend ground turkey for a leaner, higher protein choice
  • Lite, Mexican blend cheese
  • Pickled Jalapeno slices,optional
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Red onion, diced
  • Guacamole; a small wholly-guacamole cup works great!
  • Lite sour cream; for less calories and fat I suggest opting for plain, nonfat greek yogurt

To make:

  1. Preheat over to 400° 
  2. Prepare your ground meat & season with a low-sodium taco seasoning. (chili powder, cumin & garlic salt works great as well!)
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay your peppers out
  4. Top peppers with cooked meat 
  5. Top meat with cheese and cheese with jalapenos
  6.  Bake for 8-10 minutes
  7. Top with sour cream or plain, nonfat greek yogurt & guacamole and sprinkle with cherry tomatoes & red onion.
  8. Enjoy!

You can also add toppings such as:

  • Black olives
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Cilantro
  • Pico De Gallo

The options are endless!
