Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Soy Crisp Nachos

4 WWPP Posted by 7 years ago 4 Comments

I was in one of those moods. You know, when you want to eat something just to eat. Because you know it’s there. You’re not particularly hungry BUT if grab whatever it is you want, you’ll eat. And eat. and EAT!

Yup, that’s the mood I was in. I had a bag of soy crisps calling my name from the pantry. I just couldn’t get them out of my head. Normally I’d grab the bag, and I’m not kidding, eat the whole thing. I rarely can stop at a serving size. But today I wanted to hold back a bit. The husband and I are planning on taking the toddler out for dinner and I already ate a good breakfast and lunch. So I decided my snack should be a bit controlled.

So instead of just grabbing the bag I decided to DO something with them. I’m always more satisfied when I make something anyway, so I heated up the oven and turned my plain old bag of soy crisps into something fun and satisfying. I used what I had on hand, which wasn’t much, but as always, take the idea and run with it! Soy Crisp Nachos

  • 1 oz (28g) of your favorite soy crisps (like these, I also put more in the store)
  • 1/4 of a green pepper diced
  • 1/2 oz fancy shredded mexican cheese blend
  • sprinkle of chili powered and dried cilantro

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Arrange soy crisps on small plate. Top with peppers and cheese.

Bake for about 5 minutes until cheese melts.

Sprinkle with chili powder and cilantro. Serve with a side of salsa.

If you notice below I changed my NI for recipes. I can’t promise I’ll go back to all my old ones, but from now on I’ll post it like below…

    November 14, 2008 did not just make healthy nachos. My love for you just went to a whole other level. No really, thanks for the idea. I haven't found soy crisps here so the link to buy them off of amazon is awesome. And, just in case you didn't know it already, you kick ass! Enjoy your weekend! Reply
