A grand favourite with everyone, these chips can be conveniently made in advance and had with salsa… or you can go for quick stir-fry nachos like this. Since cheesy nachos are a no-no for diabetics, I have added value to the nachos by stir-frying with nutritious vegetables.

You will no longer crave for those high-cal cheesy delights once you have tasted this… however, remember that even these cannot be had regularly, but only as an occasional treat!
