Midweek Mealtime - Shift Shop Nachos

Wednesday, August 02, 2017

Shift Shop NachosToday's midweek mealtime is actually broken into 2 parts: this one and this salsa.  Said salsa is necessary for this recipe.  

I love nachos.  I usually make them fit into whatever meal plan I happen to be following at that moment, but I was a little concerned about the Shift Shop meal plan.  After all, grain free meant no tortilla chips.  At first, I just decided I could live without for three weeks.  After all, three weeks is no big deal, right?

But then my mind wouldn't stop, and an idea began to emerge.  What if I could get potatoes sliced thin enough to get crispy enough to use as my nachos?  The rest would be easy to make work!  So I did it, and I loved them.  And - just because I could - I ate them 3 days in a row.  Don't judge me, ok? 

If you happen to be doing Shift Shop OR you are simply following a grain free lifestyle, these could really help you make that shift!  And if you're not living grain free?  Feel free to switch out the potatoes for tortilla chips!


  • 4 white potatoes, scrubbed and sliced thin on a mandoline
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey or beef
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained (if in week 2 of Shift Shop, omit these)
  • 1 cup salsa or your favorite store-bought brand
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • low fat Greek yogurt for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line cookie sheets with foil; spray with cooking spray.
  3. Place potatoes in a single layer on cookie sheets; spray with cooking spray.
  4. Bake potatoes 20-30 minutes, turning halfway through, until brown and crispy.  Keep a really close eye on potatoes from 20 minutes on - they get brown quickly!
  5. While potatoes are baking, brown meat and onion in a large skillet until crumbly.  Drain any excess liquid. 
  6. Add salsa and beans (if using), and bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  8. When potatoes are done, layer potatoes, meat and cheese on cookie sheet.  Broil on high for 1-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
  9. Top with Greek yogurt as desired.

If you count containers on any of Beachbody's plans, 1/4 of this recipe is 2 yellows, 2 reds (if you use the Greek yogurt, 1 blue and 1/2 green.
