If you could pick a favorite food, what would it be? One that tops my list is nachos. But sadly, since tortilla chips are a main ingredient of nachos, the starch factor is hard to avoid. UNTIL NOW!!

I actually got this idea from one of my patients. Turkey pepperoni as chips. Genius!!! Just pop those babies in the microwave on a paper towel for a few minutes and you have crispy, high protein crisps.

If you are a nacho lover, as I am, then I think you will enjoy this! Additional toppings could be jalapenos, black olives, plain greek yogurt, salsa, or black beans.

What toppings would you use?
