Nacho’s Keto Style

Chicken Nacho'sI generally try to prepare a menu for the week.  That way if it was a long day, and I generally have the idea of not knowing what I want for dinner.  I can have the meat thawed out, or purchased and in the house.

Hungry for Mexican!  While following the Keto lifestyle there is a bit of a change when it comes to Mexican food.  No tortilla chips, beans, rice.   I put my brain cap on, and one by one figured out what I could easily replace it with.  I was hungry for chicken nachos.   So I replaced the Nacho chip with a cheese chip, and then I got a rotisserie chicken and a few veggies and then topped it with more cheese and avocado and sour cream.  This was so yummy and so filling.

After making this, I started to envision taco meat and fajitas.
