Nachos have always been one of the favorite foods. Growing up I used to have them all the time. My mom would lay out all of the ingredients for our nachos or tacos and us kids used to have fun decorating our plates!
I guess you could say, since I was very little I was already
food styling and recipe creating.
Unfortunately, Nachos are not your “healthiest” food … or are they?
I discovered a company, Siete foods, that I have been using for awhile now. And as a nutritionist these chips are what I recommend to my patients.
Yes, I recommend chips you heard that correctly.
Siete foods is a family owned business that started when the Garza family moved towards their healthy journey.
“We began learning about the ways that food can either heal or harm us. At my brother’s urging, I decided to adopt a low-inflammation, grain-free diet, and my whole family chose to join me for the journey”… says Siete.
As a Mexican-American family in the heart of south Texas they loved their traditional meals with tortilla chips and tortillas. They make grain free tortillas from almond or coconut flour and advocate for healthier lifestyles among Latino families.
Nachos are fun because they are simply a blank canvas.
My favorite recipe steers away from your traditional nacho.
Mexican sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice,
cilantro microgreens, fresh tomatoes, and cashew queso.
I simply layer eat of the toppings onto the nachos and drizzle the queso on top.
I preheat the oven to 350 degrees and roast chopped sweet potatoes tossing in EVOO and frontier coop Mexican seasoning mix for 35 minutes.
I roast the cauliflower rice in the oven with salt and pepper for 15 minutes.
I soak 1 cup cashews in warm water for 2 hours, rinsed them and blended them with…
1 tsp dijon
1 pinch pink salt
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 lemon juiced
1 tsp chili powder
1/8-1/4 cup water
Layer as your choose and savor all the delicious flavors guilt free!
