HOW TO MAKE BELL PEPPER VEGGIE NACHOS

Bell peppers, chicken, BBQ Sauce, Cheese, Green Onion, Etc.

For this recipe I used leftover chicken {you could also use leftover ground meat or beef, or cook some} chopped and tossed in some BBQ sauce.

I like to cook the bell peppers a little before I decorate them with all the goodies and melt the cheese.

For this recipe, you actually roast the peppers before making them into nachos. Roasting softens the peppers a little but also browns them up.

CARBS EARLY IN THE DAY

I try and have all my carbs early on in the day, meaning supper time is all about veggies and protein. However, this all depends on when my workout is, morning or evening.

You can get pretty creative with all kinds of vegetables out there to make some delicious carb-less recipes. From cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, the list goes on.

I think it is important to get creative with veggies, to keep them interesting, fun and tasty.

Veggies don’t need to be boring, they can be super fun if you dress them up the right way… and make them look appetizing.

Add some of your favorite spices, sauces, etc. Just don’t go overboard, add enough sauce for a little flavor. A little can go a long way, especially if you water it down a little.

Dip these yummy nachos in some salsa, guacamole and/or plain Greek yogurt.
