Time for Lunch!

Want a quick and delicious lunch, bursting with nutrition and flavor?

I sure do! Nachos! What, HEALTHY nachos?  How is this possible?

This is one of my all-time favorite lunches, and might I add, quick and easy!  

Here is what you will need:
1 serving organic, non-gmo tortilla chips
1 13oz can natural chicken breast
1T cumin
1/4C water
1t chili power
1t corriander
pink Himalayan salt and pepper to taste

1/2 soft-to-touch avocado
1 T chopped cilantro
1T chopped onions
1 Roma tomato 
1T chopped jalapeño peppers
1t lime juice
 2T "cheese" sauce, warmed 
("cheese" is optional, but gluten, dairy and soy free! It has a umami flavor, but does not taste like cheese, however, it is much better for you and also pairs well with this dish)

Open and drain can of chicken and empty in to your pan, break apart chicken and add water and seasonings and stir until chicken is covered with spices.  Cook over medium heat until warmed throughout.  

Smash avocado with the back of a fork and add the cilantro, onions, tomato, jalapeño, lime juice and salt and pepper and combine.

Assemble by spreading the chips on the plate followed by only about 1/2C of the chicken mixture, drizzle on the "cheese" sauce and then the guacamole.  

I hope you love it as much as I do! Do not be worried about the "fat" in the avocado!  Avocados are so good for you.  Personally, I eat 1/2-1 avocado a day.  

Please note, if you do not like a lot of spice, omit the jalapeño pepper and reduce all seasonings by 1/2. This recipe serves one, but makes enough chicken for 3-4 servings, so either save it for later lunches, or multiply the cheese and guacamole ingredients for additional servings.
