Easy Chipless Nachos

As many of you know, I spent the last week in Mexico! Mexican food has been on my mind ever since I got back; I think I could eat it every single day and never get sick of it! Alas, chipless nachos were born!

I’m not sure you can even call it a recipe, it’s THAT simple. It requires minimal ingredients, but it’s downright delicious. I didn’t miss the chips whatsoever! I’m going to hop to it because I know y’all scroll past me blabbing, and I don’t blame you. I would too. So, here we go!

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag of mini sweet peppers
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (I like to use 93% or 99% lean to cut down a little bit on the fat, but use what you like!)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bag of Trader Joes frozen Mexican style roasted corn with Cotija cheese
  • 1 cup cheese (use what you like! I used a Mexican blend)
  • Trader Joes cowboy caviar (or salsa of your choice)
  • 2 tsp Trader Joes chili lime seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 400.
  2. Brown the ground turkey in a pan with olive oil.
  3. When the ground turkey is 1-2 minutes away from being done, add in the frozen Mexican style corn and the chili lime seasoning with the ground turkey.
  4. When the corn and ground turkey are both done, mix in the Cotija cheese that comes in the bag with the corn.
  5. Set aside the ground turkey mix to cool.
  6. Slice the mini sweet peppers lengthwise and remove all seeds.
  7. Lay the peppers cut side up, close together, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. I didn’t measure the S&P, just a sprinkle or two to season the peppers!
  9. Layer the ground turkey and corn mix evenly among the peppers.
  10. Top with shredded cheese.
  11. Bake for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted! Keep an eye on them, every oven varies.
  12. Top with Trader Joes cowboy caviar and avocado and enjoy!
