Diabetic Nachos Recipe

This diabetic nachos recipe can be made with little ingredients and in little time. I am a sucker for nachos! Don't get me wrong, a great basket of chips and salsa is good, but nachos are extra delicious. I love this recipe because you can make your own chips or use a bag that you have available in the cabinet. Also, you can make this recipe extra healthy by using whole wheat tortillas instead of white tortillas. However you decide to fix this recipe....enjoy!
