Rainbow Nacho Boats: Too good not to share!

Rainbow Nacho Boats-2

Here's a fun, delicious and EASY recipe that I recently shared with our Weight Loss Alumni group. This is a great recipe because....

1.  It's anti-inflammatory.

2.  It fits nicely into our maintenance program. 

3. You could EASILY adapt this recipe if you are currently on the program.

4. It's a perfect appetizer that will impress your friends.


6. You'll be super popular if you serve this to your family and friends. 

Nacho Boats 🌶


  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 lb (450g) 93% lean ground meat (turkey, chicken, beef). You could also use shredded chicken!
  • Taco seasoning of your choice.
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 21 mini rainbow peppers, halved and seeded (about 13 oz seeded)
  • 1 cup sharp shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 2 tbsp light sour cream, thinned with 1 tbsp water (optional)
  • 2 tbsp sliced black olives (optional)
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced thin (optional)
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a large baking tray with parchment or aluminum foil. Lightly spray with oil.
  • Spray oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add taco seasoning. Cook the meat for 4 to 5 minutes until it is completely cooked through. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and chicken broth, mix well, and simmer on medium for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Meanwhile, arrange mini peppers in a single layer, cut-side up, close together.
  • Fill each pepper half with your meat mixture, then top with shredded cheese and jalapeno slices if using.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven and top with black olives, dollops of thinned sour cream, and chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.
