There’s no such thing as a successful tailgate or football party without some really good nachos. There is, however, such a thing as heartburn—and calorie overload.

So lighten up your nachos a bit with this foolproof hack that’ll still taste great and won’t sacrifice nutrition.

Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

20 min.

  • 1 cup cooked shredded white meat chicken
  • ½ cup canned, drained black beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 bag baked chips
  • 1 cup salsa

Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
