I’m not sure what it is, but all things Mexican style are in the air! First little Mack’s Coco themed 1st birthday party and ALL the adorable pics flooding Tracy’s Instagram.
Then Perk Energy surprises us with a new Mexican Hot Chocolate! I’m patiently waiting for mine to arrive. Grab yourself some here! Rumor has it it’s delicious! It’s caffeinated like the original, but with a little extra Mexican flare! Don’t forget to use our code: stayfitmom at checkout to get 15% off! Tracy and I both drink Perk every single morning, it’s THAT good. It has collagen in it and has great macros too!
And last but not least is our extra spicy new recipe, Skinny Chili Con Queso! Not actually real spicy, but enough kick and flavor it will raise your nacho game up a level. Obviously this is great as a dip, but it’s fantastic on a loaded plate of nachos too!
Beanefields recently sent me a variety box of chips to try out and so far I’ve loved every flavor. The sea salt flavors I received are excellent, but right now Jalapeno Nacho has my heart. The chips are made from beans if you haven’t guessed, which means extra fiber and protein in each serving! You can purchase them right on their site or search for a store that carries them here.
I’ve been crushing some personal plates of nachos every day this week and I’m not upset about it. I do 1.5 servings of chips, 75 grams of the Skinny Chili Con Queso (you can log this per gram in MyFitnessPal, just search: Stay Fit Mom Skinny Chili Con Queso), 3 ounces of rotisserie chicken (white meat), 2 tablespoons of sliced olives, a few jalapenos, and some fresh cilantro. The macros come out to: 36P, 33C, 16.6F. Not bad at all!
Ok, on to this super simple recipe! I made this with the Laughing Cow White Cheddar wedges, not the original. It would still be great with the original I’m sure, but be aware the macros are quite different if you’re tracking.

Any mozzarella cheese will work. I calculated the macros for regular mozzarella, not the reduced fat shown above. Sorry, I hate to confuse you! We’re only talking about 1 gram of fat per ounce here anyway, not a big deal. Once you have all your ingredients together you’re just going to heat them up. See recipe and steps below!
- 1 – 12oz Can Evaporated Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
- 4 Laughing Cow White Cheddar Wedges
- 4oz. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 – 10oz. Can Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (I used Rotel)
- 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 Teaspoon Pepper
- Over medium heat whisk evaporated milk and corn starch.
- Once it is starting to bubble and almost boil, reduce heat to low.
- Stir in cheeses slowly, adding a little at a time.
- Once all cheese is melted add canned tomatoes and spices.
- Stir well and enjoy!
