Sweet Pepper Nachos – all the flavor and hardly any carbs! It doesn’t get much better than that! Replacing Tortilla Chips with Sweet Bell Peppers is seriously the easiest away to have your Nachos and eat them too! Here is a step by step instruction on how to make them!
Step 1: Start by browning some ground turkey with 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder, chili powder and cumin.
Step 2: Make the Black Bean and Corn mixture with one 15 oz can of black beans (drained), one 15 oz can of Sweet Corn (drained), 1/2 red onion diced, 8 grape tomatoes (quartered), and 2 tbsp lemon juice.
Step 3: Now comes the preparation of the the Sweet Bell Peppers. You first cut the top off. Then you cut in half so that you have the widest remaining pieces. Then you scrap the ribs and seeds out and then you have a good “chip” for the nachos.
Step 4: Build the Nachos. Place all the prepped sweet bell peppers on a baking sheet (oven should be preheated to 425deg). Put a portion of the cooked ground turkey on each bell pepper. Then a portion of the black bean & corn mixture. Then sprinkle cheese over all of it. Put it in the oven for 15 minutes
Step 5: Once the nachos are cooked, plate a portion. Then top with sour cream and pickled jalapeno, as desired.
