Nachos are quickly becoming a staple on my menu of easy recipes. The key for me is finding new and creative ways to reinvent an oldie but goodie. I know I sound like a broken record but we have slowly been cutting back on our meat consumption and replacing our decision with more beans, rice and vegetables.

I can say that most of my recipes are kid tested and approved. I am always trying to figure out new and creative ways of sneaking healthy food into a kid’s diet.

Cabbage on nachos might sound crazy, and well, maybe it is. I think it’s refreshing and adds so much color to an already bright dish.

Try it–you may just like it!
