Nachos with Rutabaga Chips
Health Highlights


3 large Rutabaga, Swedish turnip, raw (rutabaga chips - peeled and sliced)
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (rutabaga chips)
1 tsp Salt (rutabaga chips)
1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (nacho meat)
454 gm Beef, ground, extra lean (nacho meat - can use bison, turkey, chicken)
1 tbsp Chili powder (nacho meat)
2 tsp Onion powder (nacho meat)
1 tsp Cumin (nacho meat - ground)
1 tsp Garlic powder (nacho meat)
1 tsp Paprika (nacho meat)
1 tsp Oregano, dried (nacho meat)
1 tsp Salt (nacho meat)
1 cup Water (nacho meat)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (for the nachos - seeded and diced)
1/2 medium Red onion (for the nachos - thinly sliced)
2 stalk(s) Green onion (for the nachos - thinly sliced)
1 sprig Cilantro (coriander) (for the nachos - thinly sliced)
1/2 cup Guacamole (for the nachos)
1/2 cup Plain yogurt, 1- 2% M.F. (for the nachos)



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

Peel rutabagas, then with a sharp knife or mandoline, slice thinly. In a large mixing bowl, add rutabaga slices and oil, toss to coat evenly.

Spread slices in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet, sprinkle with salt. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway to ensure even browning. Repeat with remaining rutabaga slices.

Transfer rutabaga chips to paper toweling to absorb excess oil. Chips will continue to crisp as they cool.


In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

Add ground meat and cook until browned, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up meat.

Add chili powder, onion powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, paprika, dried oregano and salt, stir to combine.

Add water, bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until liquid has evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove meat from heat.


Place a layer of rutabaga chips on a plate. Spoon on seasoned meat mixture, top with guacamole and plain yogurt, then garnish with diced red pepper, sliced red and green onion and fresh minced cilantro.
