Yes! I made Nachos. And they’re Paleo. Well Paleo-ish. But they are dang good, and they’re perfect for Mexican night.
Paleo Nachos Recipe - Dr. Monica Bravo (1)Mexican food is just great. When I discovered queso I was asophom*ore in high school, and I remember wanting to go to the Caretta’s in Covington just to get queso and a grilled chicken breast. See as a picky eater, when I discovered new foods that I liked, I kinda went overboard with them. I discovered I liked queso. Ate a ton of queso. I discovered I liked Chimichangas. Ate a lot of Chimichangas. I discovered I liked caesar salad sandwiches. Ate a TON of caesar salad sandwiches. Would it have been better if I didn’t discover these not so healthy foods? No way. I needed to branch out. And I’m glad I did. I still go through periods of trying all new things, and it helps inspire new dishes that I can make for YOU!

So back to the Nachos. If I never tried Plantain chips, I wouldn’t have known Paleo nachos were possible. A few weeks ago, I made a homemade salsa, which was divine, and I used plantain chips. Then I got ambitious and failed terribly at making a veganqueso dip, soI said let’s make a Paleo Nachos Recipe.

Here’s the basics. Buy or make Plantain Chips. Shred some hard cheddar Goat Cheese, top with a Mexican style ground beef, and add an avocado or a side of guacamole (full recipe below). You’ve got Paleo Nachos. Some people tolerate regular cheese well. Some people, like me, don’t. So I eat Goat Cheese, which works A-OK.

    Just made these tonight. Um, WOW. So! Good! I added some cashew sour cream and some cashew “queso” for added deliciousness. Will definitely make these nachos again and again. I’ve never had plantain chips before!
