Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Chili Nachos

Sometimes there's nothing like the guilty pleasure of a big plate of nachos. Especially when you don't have to feel guilty about it!

The nice thing about this recipe is that it is also vegetarian. You can feel free to adapt it to your own tastes, or to use it as an appetizer instead of a meal, but this way is perfect for a meatless Monday meal. That's especially the case if you're in a hurry because this is so quick and easy to put together.

Also, while there is a lot of prepared food in this, you can also make it with nearly all homemade ingredients. You can use the original or make a vegetarian version of my chili or black beans. And try making some of your own salsa, it's easy and better than the jarred stuff. I haven't tried making more own tortillas yet, but if you have, try cutting them up and toasting them yourself.

And, for the guiltless part, one-fourth of this recipe is only 364 calories with 9 grams of fat and 10 of fiber.

Deal of the Day: I'm looking at this for making tortillas.

Looks like a plan for tomorrow night. Actually, I already had a can of refried beans out on the table, and was wondering...what shall we do. This may be it.

I'm gonna give it try. My husband would probably love it! I post a blog myself, about new recipes I "test" on my family. Would I have permission to repost this, with your name of course? The url is

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
