    Dawn's Note:

    I love nachos, but hate the guilt associated with consuming such a high fat indulgence. I found this recipe in Light Cooking Entertaining. A very nice book for dinner parties, especially if you want to serve good food without clogging people's arteries! This recipe includes instructions on how to assemble the nachos as well as a great bean dip recipe. The fat content is four grams for 4 nachos. Good health and happy eating!
