Healthy Nachos Recipe


Here’ the story, John dory…

Why I created this healthy nachos recipe

It all started because my husband's favourite food is nachos.

We had been invited to a party and were asked to bring something for starters (aka that’s an ‘appetiser’ - if you’re American).

I suggested a salad.

He suggested nachos.

And thus… this recipe was born. Who knew compromise could taste so delicious?!

Why this nachos recipe is healthy

I’m all about crowding in more vegetables, instead of denying yourself the foods you love. Turns out, it’s much more sustainable and fun.

And food should always be fun, especially the healthy stuff. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

This healthy nachos recipe is:

  • loaded with fresh vegetables (hello lovely antioxidants, phytonutrients and vitamins).

  • flavour-packed which makes you forget it’s healthy altogether. So it’s food that happens to be healthy instead of ‘health food’, if you get me?

Anyway - I’m super happy to share this recipe with you. I’ll be making it again for my family and friends.

That said, my husband did says this healthy nachos is not like normal nachos (the cheesy, beefy stuff) but he is cool with that. There is a time and place for everything. That’s the beauty about my approach and eating everything in moderation. 😊

So dear friends - enjoy this healthy nachos recipe with all your might!

Big love from my kitchen to yours,

I made the recipe for 20 ppl so what you see in the photos is this recipe doubled.

This is a seriously awesome healthy starter or appetiser to take to a party. I got so many compliments when I made this recipe and I hope you do too. It's crispy, full of flavour and easy! Save this healthy recipe for your next party and impress your pals.


  • 200g corn chips
  • 1 avocado
  • 500g (17oz) tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 50g (2oz) feta
  • 1/2 cup coriander/cilantro
  • 1 red chilli
  • 50g (2oz) pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha or hot sauce


  1. Chop all the ingredients (except for corn chips).
  2. Arrange corn chips on a platter. 
  3. Layer with the rest of the ingredients on top of the corn chips and pour the dressing on top. Do this step as close to serving as possible to keep it all crispy! 


I like to use danish feta... It's just a taste/texture thing, nothing to do with nutrition. 
If you don't love onion (I'm a bit weird and love onion), then use chives or green onion/scallions. 
Mix it up and try different ingredients. Other ideas include black beans, capsicum/peppers, mint, pomegranate seeds, cheddar or parmesan cheese. 
I used Woolworths Macro corn chips. They were lovely. 
If you're entertaining, prep all the ingredients before. Combine it just before serving to keep the chips crispy! 
If pine nuts are too expensive (coz they are super pricey!) then skip them. 
Sriracha is a popular Asian hot sauce. You can get it from all major supermarkets. Or just use some hot sauce, if you want. 
For these photos, I doubled the recipe because I was serving 15-20 people. There was barely any left.

Here’s some photographic evidence that this recipe is awesome.

All that remained from a massive 20 person platter. #ProofofYumminess.
