Wonders will never cease. A healthier version of nachos and margaritas? I wouldn’t have believed it either, until I tried it! One of my all-time favorite author-bloggers, Danielle Walker, posted this, and I had to try it.
Set oven to broil, with a rack in the middle.
Spread the plantain chips in a single layer on a baking sheet and top with the meat and cheese (I used parchment paper to prevent any cheese sticking to the baking sheet).
Broil for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with the salsa, avocado, olives- whatever you want to use!
To make your own taco meat, you can use the following recipe:
Place the chicken in a sauce pan and cover with water. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 10-12 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a bowl, cool and shred the chicken.
Heat your oil in a small pan, stir in onions and cook until the onions are translucent (2-3 minutes).
Mix in the chicken, spices and tomato sauce, and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 3 minutes.
I tried this with chicken- I suppose you could do the same with beef, except you brown the meat versus simmering it in water. If anyone tries it with beef, let me know how it turns out!
Now, onto the good stuff…MARGARITAS!!!
Combine the tequila, fresh lime and honey syrup into a shaker and add ice. Shake vigorously. Pour through a strainer into a glass, garnished with salt or lime wedges as desired
