My dietitian tells me salads are healthy. So if I stick a childhood junk food favorite on top of a bunch of greens that definitely qualifies.
Ok, I’m not cool enough to have a dietitian, but if one saw my version of a chili boat I’d like to think they’d approve anyway.
I used a spicy bison and pork chili, but choose your favorite. A can of chili works as well.
Chili Boat Salads
With all these toppings you’ll find there’s no need for salad dressing. For a vegetarian version use a homemade meatless chili or a canned product like Amy’s Organic Spicy Chili.
Lettuce of choice, lots
Warm Chili, preferably the spicy type
Onion, thinly sliced
Sliced black olives
Cheddar cheese, a small handful
Fritos, a small handful
Layer a dinner plate with lettuce, a good sized portion of chili, sliced onion to taste, black olives, cheddar cheese and Fritos.
