Healthy Gluten-Free Nachos Recipes

Crowd-pleasing gluten-free nachos are fun to eat!

Nachos can be one of the healthier, crowd-pleasing gluten-free appetizers as long as you carefully read labels when shopping for tortilla chips, refried beans, salsa, and seasonings used in nacho recipes. When heading off to the grocery take along a copy of the Triumph Dining Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide, a real help when shopping for gluten-free products.

When possible choose organic products without added MSG, trans fats, and preservatives. Some refried bean products are loaded with unhealthy ingredients. Also, "flavored" tortilla chips can contain gluten–look for "gluten-free" on the label!
