Strawberry Banana Pancakes and Fiesta Nachos

Strawberry Banana Pancakes
     There is a yummy, super healthy, kid friendly breakfast recipe from the Meatless Monday offerings this week.
     And here is one I just offered up, for younger chidren you can call them Fiesta Nachos because they are so colorful. A great game day treat for grown-ups too.

 For the bottom layer I like to use both blue and white corn tortilla chips. The next layer was a couple of scoops of vegetarian chili, and some salsa. Next is my homemeade guacamole which I keep a superfood by using no oil, just fresh avocado mashed with chopped tomato, onion, lime juice and cilantro. Then comes a moderate amount of greek yogurt (you can mix with some sour cream if you can't deal with that) and shredded jack cheese spread over the top. I sprinkled some choppped green pepper on too, topped with another handful of chopped cilantro. You should think of nachos like pizza though, there is no one right way to do it. Just focus on going heavy on the good for you stuff, and going lightly on the higher fat ingredients. Warm these up in the oven for just a few minutes, and serve with plenty of napkins. Most teenagers go wild for a tray of these, and you can feel pretty good about serving them.
Next up, rhubarb recipes, I have a bountiful crop up in the backyard, where I've been hard at work lately spreading fresh loam in all of the raised beds.
