Low Fat Super Bowl Recipes: Pork and Pinto Bean Nachos

Loaded Nachos

Stacked atop a mound of fried tortilla chips, nachos piled with fatty ground beef, cheese sauce, refried beans and sour cream can weigh in at over 1200 calories and 74g fat. Reduce the calories by 700 and the fat grams by 50 with some simple substitutions that still pack in the classic flavors.

Makeover Tip: Before you take a time out on nachos, try this version with equally delicious flavor that won’t leave you feeling overly full before the end of the first quarter. This version packs on fan-favorites like pork tenderloin, reduced-fat cheese, beans, and bacon but in a more healthful way. Finish with low-calorie, nutrient boosters like homemade salsa and fresh cilantro.
