A healthier version of traditional nachos using bell pepper \"chips\" instead of tortilla chips. Other ingredients, including seasoning, have also be revolutionized. Even my 2-year-old loves this version of nachos (but then again, she loves raw bell peppers).
1 pound ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1/3 packet Williams Chilli seasoning mix (sodium-free alternative to taco seasoning)
3 medium peppers, seeded and cut into bite-size pieces
1 can black beans, heated
8 oz Velveeta (regular or light), cubed
1 1/2 cups salsa
Light ranch dressing for drizzling
1/2 cup crushed low-fat tortilla chips for topping
Cook turkey and onion until meat is browned and onion is tender; blend in seasoning mix until meat mixture is evenly coated; remove from heat. Combine Velveeta and salsa in microwave-safe dish; heat in microwave for 5-6 minutes or until Velveeta is melted, stirring halfway. For individual servings, spread pepper chips onto plate, top with meat, then black beans, then Velveeta-salsa mix. Drizzle lightly with dressing and top with a handful of tortilla chips.
