Nachos! These delicious nachos are filled with flavours, textures and have a healthy twist. We replaced the traditional fried corn chips with baked corn tortilla and the sour cream with greek yogurt. The spiced black beans with the coconut & mango hot sauce make these nachos outstanding. Addtional colour is added to these nacho as they are served on a bed of romaine lettuce. Ready within 20 minutes, these nachos will quickly become a family favourite.

Corn is often believed to have limited health benefits, this is a myth. Corn is high in both lutein and zeaxanthin, two compounds that are important for healthy vision.

Dips and sauces can be a fun way to customize a meal to your little one’s taste preferences.
The greek yogurt is a great sauce for kids as it is not spicy. For kids, you can skip the coconut & mango hot sauce as well as the hot pepper.
Kids can help assemble and garnish the nachos.
