National Nacho Day

National Nacho Day

 

It’s National Nachos Day!

Literally my mind just went in an ooey gooey nachos frenzy when a friend on Facebook told me it’s National Nacho Day. How did I not know this?! And then I reminded myself that I haven’t had nachos in basically a week and it was definitely overdue. Plus, nachos can be nutritional when you load them up with toppings rich in fiber and vitamins. So tonight darlings, skip that meal prep you planned and celebrate your love of nachos.

In honor of National Nacho Day, I’m sharing one of my favorite nutritional nacho recipes which I modified from Half Baked Harvest.

Meal Prep Sunday: Texmex Stuffed Squash and Heirloom Pico De Gallo

Meal Prep Sunday: Texmex Stuffed Squash and Heirloom Pico De Gallo

 

Secret: I rarely meal prep. But I will for these.

I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make these. Cut squash – check. Remove seeds – check. Roast for an hour in the oven – check. And then the fun begins.
