Here's what you'll need:

  • high-protein wraps

  • chicken breasts

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  • 1 can tomatoes

  • 1 tbsp Mexican seasoning

Other Toppings

  • 1 cup shredded low-fat cheese

  • 1/2 cup chopped cherry tomatoes • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/2 cup canned corn

  • 1/2 cup canned black beans

  • 1/8 cup chopped jalapeños

  • avocado, cubed

  • Fresh coriander

For the homemade ‘Sour Cream’

  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yoghurt

  • 1 tbsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  1. Add the chicken broth, chicken breast, tomatoes, and seasonings to a slow cooker. Seal and set it to pressure cook for eight minutes, or on low overnight. Shred with a fork.

  2. Cut wraps with scissors into triangle shapes. Spray with oil and either airfry at 180C/360F for 8 minutes, or line a baking tray with baking paper and evenly lay out the chips and bake at 175C/350F for 10 minutes. Cut up all your toppings and set aside.

  3. Cover your chips evenly with your shredded cheese. Then sprinkle all of your toppings, including the shredded chicken — except for the avocado — evenly across your chips. Bake for 10 minutes or until your cheese is nice and melted.

  4. Mix together your "sour cream” in a small bowl.

  5. Remove the nachos from the oven and evenly distribute your avocado

    chunks, sprinkle on a little more cilantro, drizzle your "sour cream" mixture across the entire tray, and serve. To meal prep, add all toppings and chicken in a container and the chips in a separate container.
