This recipe features de-seeded and halved roasted peppers stuffed with shredded chicken and creamy cotija cheese. Exceptionally rich in vitamin C, bell peppers also provide heart-healthy potassium and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.

But that’s not all: You’ll also be sprinkling on black beans; salsa; pomegranate seeds; diced avocado and pineapple; roasted pepitas; and chopped cilantro. It’s a nutrient-loaded dish that bursts with festive flavors and colors. So don’t be surprised if these Instagram-worthy nachos disappear within minutes!

One serving provides 209 calories, 11.73 grams total fat, 18.37 grams protein and 7.94 grams total carbohydrates.
