snacks | Using beans instead of ground beef helps bust fat and boost fiber in this zesty Tex-Mex treat.
4 oz baked low-fat tortilla chips
9 oz fat-free canned refried beans
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup guacamole
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place chips closely together on a nonstick baking sheet. Top with beans, cheese and salsa.
Heat until cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Serve with dollops of guacamole. Yields about 12 chips per serving.
We renovated Nachos Grande by:
Swapping low-fat tortilla chips for full-fat tortilla chips.
Replacing stir-fried ground beef with fat-free and fiber-rich refried beans.
Using reduced-fat Mexican Cheese instead of Monterey Jack cheese.
Reducing the amount of guacamole and omitting the sour cream.

So overall, this week I will have to watch the flex points closely. They are gone or almost gone. I let the flood gates open this weekend. I enjoyed the food that I wanted to eat. I do better watching the points when I am working, since I pack my lunch the night before and count my points. When the points are gone - I quit eating. I drank plenty of water each day.
