Guilt Free Fajita Seasoned Nachos #RecipeMakeover

It's nacho night tonight but I decided to make these nachos guilt free by changing some unhealthy ingredients to cut calories and fat! For these Guilt Free Fajita Seasoned Nachos I use lean ground turkey, black bean hummus, low fat cheese and sour cream, and I make my own flavor packed Fajita Seasoning.  The flavor and taste is still there but it is much healthier! You are going to love this #RecipeMakeover meal! 
It's the last day of Recipe Makeover week!
I have enjoyed sharing my healthy versions all week of some of my favorite comfort food recipes.

Ingredients:

  • 20-24oz pkg ground lean turkey
  • 10oz bag whole wheat or baked tortilla scoops style chips
  • 1 cup black bean hummus {or sub black bean dip}
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  •  1 1/2 cups low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped for garnish
  • 1/4 c fat free sour cream {or sub plain Greek yogurt}
  • 1 tbsp Fajita seasoning
For the Fajita seasoning: 
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  •  1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne {optional}

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Pour the bag of tortilla chips on top and spread out on the baking sheet. 
  4. Meanwhile, add ground turkey to a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Cook and crumble until no longer pink.
  6. Add 1 tbsp Fajita seasoning and toss to coat. Remove from heat.
  7. Spoon the cooked turkey over the chips.
  8. Next drizzle black bean hummus, I used Bush's brand, on top.
  9. Then sprinkle on sliced olives.
  10. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly on top.
  11. Bake for 5-6 minutes, until everything is warmed through and the cheese is melted. 
  12. Remove from oven and drizzle with salsa, sour cream and top with chopped cilantro.
  13. If you like heat, add thinly sliced fresh jalapenos on top too!
  14. Serve right away potluck style or scoop on to plates.

For the Fajita seasoning: 
  1. Add all ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. 
  2. Reserve 1 tbsp seasoning for the nachos and pour the remaining in a mason jar or container with a lid. 
  3. Seal and store for up to 3 months. 
 Add ground turkey to a large skillet over medium heat.
Cook and crumble until no longer pink.
I use multigrain scoops style tortilla chips or baked tortilla chips
 instead of the fried white corn tortilla chips. 
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Pour the bag of tortilla chips on top and spread out on the baking sheet. 
I mix up my own homemade fajita seasoning.
 You use basic spices in your pantry and cut out all those additives!
Add 1 tbsp Fajita seasoning to the cooked ground turkey. 
Toss to coat and then remove from heat.
Spoon the cooked turkey over the chips.
Next drizzle black bean hummus {or black bean dip} on top.
 My whole family, especially my kids, loves hummus. I like to make this 
black bean hummus by Bush's brand. 
Now sprinkle sliced olives on top. 
Sprinkle with cheese. I use between 1 cup and 1 1/2 cups. 
Bake at 425 degrees. Bake for 5-6 minutes, 
until everything is warmed through and the cheese is melted. 
Drizzle the nachos with salsa.
Then add fat free sour cream .
I like to add chopped cilantro and thinly sliced jalapeno too.
 Serve right away potluck style or scoop on to plates.
