Chili Cheese Nachos for 24/7 Low Carbers

Sometimes you miss nachos on a low carb diet. Not that they are every the healthiest choice, but who wants to go through life feeling deprived? With some strategic substitutions, we can have a pretty close version of tortilla chips. After all, the taste is in the toppings, which are naturally low carb. Joseph's Lavash bread can sub for carby chips.

To make a single serving of tortilla chips, cut one lavash sheet in half. Cut that into triangle wedges. Toast them in the oven until they are lightly browned and starting to crisp.

Arrange the chips on a microwavable plate. Top with cheese, chili and peppers or salsa. Today, I used a batch of 24 Hour Chili from the freezer and Monterey Jack cheese. That was quick. I also topped my nachos with my homemade Salsa Verde. A minute and a half in the microwave oven, and lunch is served. Couldn't or Wouldn't have made this yummy lunch if that chili hadn't already been made. That is how I work the system to make life easier.
