I love Mexican food, put a plate of nachos in front of me and I inhale them so I was delighted when I saw a healthyish option for nachos. I got the recipe from a Weight Watchers magazine. Needless to say I devoured them. Hope you enjoy.

Serves 2

13 Propoints per serving



200g skinless boneless chicken breasts, chopped

1-2 tsp fajita spice

1 tsp vegetable oil

1 small onion, sliced

125g mushrooms, sliced

230g can chopped tomatoes

115g canned black eye beans, drained

4x 18g bags Weight Watchers Tortillas

40g reduced fat cheddar cheese, grated

To serve:

2 tbsp reduced fat soured cream

Chopped spring onions

Pickled jalapeno peppers ( I found red jalapeno peppers in Tesco, think the brand is Discovery- really good and not as hot as the green ones)



1. Combine the chicken and spice in a non-metallic bowl and set aside while you cook the onion and mushrooms.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and, when hot, add the onion and mushrooms and stir fry for 5 minutes or until  softened and beginning to brown. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in the tomatoes and beans, reduce the heat and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

3. Preheat the grill. Add the tortilla chips to an ovenproof dish. Spoon the tomato and chicken mixture over the chips. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and melt under the grill.

4. Scatter the Jalapeno peppers, spring onions over the top and serve with the sour cream. Remember this is for sharing 🙂

You could also serve some guacomole with this but it would obviously change the propoints values dramtically. Here’s a recipe for you:
