Bell Pepper Nachos

SPONSORED: We get excited about good food and great ingredients, so we’ve teamed up with Divine Flavor to bring you delicious recipes for each season made with their fresh produce.
Swap out the usual tortilla chips for crunchy bell peppers in these bell pepper nachos that are so flavorful and delicious.

Is it just me, or is there something about the word “nacho” that just screams comfort food? I have a recipe for you that will give you all the TLC of nachos, but with a flavorful and nutritious twist. These Bell Pepper Nacho Boats are a super simple and crowd-pleasing appetizer to bring along with you to a party, or even just to have at home. They also happen to be very low in carbs, for my Keto peeps out there.

Using organic bell peppers as the base of the nachos is such a delicious and healthy way to get your nacho fix. I loved using fresh and organic Divine Flavor bell peppers. Divine Flavor is a Mexican family-run and grower-owned fruit and vegetable distribution company based out of Arizona. Divine Flavor believes in growing better food for a better world meaning taking care of both its people and the environment. They produce fresh, non-GMO foods grown in nutrient-rich, never over-farmed soil.

These recipe can be adjusted as you like, using either a different type of meat, or even beans for a vegetarian version.
