O2 Fitness Club Recipes: Cinco de Mayo Nachos

Apr 26, 2013

Written by: Liz Crotts, Personal Trainer @ O2 Fitness Brennan

With Cinco de Mayo right on Sunday, I thought it would be appropriate to create & share a healthy version of a typical, crowd pleasing, Mexican cuisine.

Whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a low key night at home or getting together with friends & family, this creation will be pleasing to your taste buds as well as your waste line.

This recipe will be appropriate for most anyone's dietary needs. Additionally, it's gluten free & I'm listing a vegetarian & vegan version too!


  • 1 large bag blue corn tortilla chips
  • 4 tbsp low-fat or nondairy sour cream
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 12oz low fat or nondairy pepper jack shredded cheese
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 small can black olives
  • scallions
  • 2 tomatoes on the vine


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Place chips evenly on baking sheet & cover with cheese.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Chop scallions, jalapeño, tomatoes & avocado.
  • Remove chips from oven & top with ingredients.

Enjoy, and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
