Healthy Nachos? Yes!
When I first served these nachos to the ladies at a wellness event, I cautioned that they should remove any preconceived nacho notions from their minds and be open to new tastes.
All that went out the window after all the oohs and ahhs these nachos received. Even extremely picky husband wolfed them down. Want nachos you can feel good about eating? Give these a try!
Feel free to load on greens, tomatoes, scallions, salsa, or whatever you prefer as chip-toppers! Be sure to use organic corn chips, as most corn grown in this country is genetically-modified, which is being linked to the growing number of food allergies in our children.
2 cups water
1/4 cup raw cashews
