Game night nachos

Hubert Cormier, Nutritionniste

Of all the snacks you can make for the armchair athlete, nachos are probably among the healthiest and most varied. All it takes is a bit of originality to adapt the classic recipe into a healthy, finger-licking treat! (Girls, it’s never been easier to convince your boyfriend to eat healthy.) What’s my recipe secret? I use a mix of ground chicken and canned lentils, and I replace the sour cream with a lightly spiced Greek yogurt! What’s more, to balance the flavours, I like to add a touch of sweetness. That’s why I make my salsa with a mix of cherry tomatoes and exotic fruit. Even if you don’t like watching sports on TV, these nachos will certainly make up for it!
