Apple Nachos

Hey friends! Today I have a healthier snack for you that’s also kid-friendly. They’re “Na-cho” regular nachos! Okay, a little cheesy I know…

But, these Apple Nachos are a great healthy snack and super simple to make. You can make these “loaded” or keep them more on the simple side. Plus, during this time of year, you’re sure to find apples around every corner for the apple pies and homemade ciders. Instead of giving into all the cookies and dessert this season (which is a huge struggle for me, but we’re working on that…), try snacking on these healthy fun apple nachos!
