Nacho Supreme


Most of you that have been reading my blog for awhile know that I have changed my eating habits to omit ALOT of sodium from it due to me being on blood pressure meds .
Well by the results of my blood work I have been doing the right thing because my BP was awesome and my sodium intake was normal ...Yeahhhhh!!!Anyway my new diet that I put myself on consists of NO pills ...just healthier choices .It is a lot like the weight watchers diet in that you can have whatever you want you just have to do it in moderation.Well I absolutely love Mexican which is very high in sodium ....so in order to remain able to eat it I have to modify it a bit .So last night we were all wanting nachos so I decided to do a little modifying to suit my needs.It turned out SOOOOOOO yummy .I bought some portabella mushrooms and sauteed them in extra virgin olive oil ...absolutely no spices at all, they have a great flavor of their own.I used that instead of meat and added tomato and avocado which is a veggie that is extremely low in sodium.It does have fat but it is the good fat.A very little bit of refried beans just enough to get the stuff to stick to the chips and a little bit of cheese ( this is were I splurged a little ...most cheese is high in sodium ) and sour cream on top ...mmmmmmmmmm I strongly suggest anyone trying this recipe it was truly fantastic and I will be eating this one again ...probably for lunch today :)
