Prep Time


Cook Time





use mini bell peppers as the “chips” for this dish – they’re crunchy and add lots of flavor without all the carbs. They’re stuffed with a chicken, cheese, and avocado filling and then broiled. The peppers stay fresh and crunchy while the filling is warm with melted cheese. It’s a great combination.

You can find bags of Veri Fine Brand mini bell peppers in the produce department at the grocery store. They come in different colors, so you end up with a colorful plate of low-carb nachos.


¼ cup diced jalapeno
1 ½ cups 12 ounces pre-cooked chicken
¾ cup 6 ounces mashed avocado
½ cup plain low-fat or fat-free Greek Yogurt
2 cups shredded cheese use low-fat if desired. divided
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and Pepper optional
24 mini bell peppers seeds, ribs & stems removed, cut in half
¼ cup chopped green onions

For Optavia users: use low-fat cheese and don’t add salt or pepper. Per Serving (12 pepper halves): 1 leaner, 3 greens, 1 healthy fat, 2 condiments.


Recipe Variations
Meat: Instead of chicken, you can use shredded roast turkey. For a different twist, try using cooked lean ground beef or ground turkey.

Jalapeno: If you don’t like jalapenos, you can leave them out or substitute a diced poblano pepper which isn’t as spicy.

Yogurt: Sour cream works in place of the yogurt if that’s what you have on hand.

Cheese: Swap the cheddar cheese for pepper jack cheese or Monterey jack cheese. Or you can do a combination.

Garnishes: Squeeze some lime juice over the top before serving, along with a sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro.
