Plantain Chips Nachos

Living near a Trader Joe's is probably the best move I have ever made. For those of you not familiar with the chain, a quick Google search will tell you about the grocery store but all you really need to know are three words: cheap organic food. They also have tons of inventive real foods- like these plantain chips.

Plantains are not sweet despite looking much like a banana. They are starchy and quite bland, unless seasonings are added. These plantain chips are simply roasted and salted. And being under $2 a bag is worthy of notation as well.

Use them like tortilla chips and build your own Paleo nachos.
(sorry, plantains are too starchy and not SCD compliant)


Handful of plantain chips
Shredded chicken
Grated cheese (I use the raw milk cheddar also from TJ's)
Salsa, of choice
Diced tomatos
Diced avocado
Hot sauce


Lay plantain chips out in an even layer across a plate.
Add chicken and cheese and microwave for 45 seconds or until cheese is just melted.
Add salsa, tomatoes, avocado, hot sauce, or whatever else you want.

Clearly, this is entirely customizable!
