Yes, you can have nachos for dessert.  I know some of you may be skeptical but these are a must try.  A healthy and inexpensive treat that can be topped with a mixture of your favorite fruits (sliced banana, blackberries, grapes, strawberries, kiwi).  Great for a quick after school snack, or dessert after your next fiesta meal.  Use up leftover tortillas from fajitas or tacos in this colorful and delicious surprise.

Whip some up over the holiday weekend as a healthy snack while you chat about your shopping bargains or watch football games!
