Foodie Friday: Pumpkin Nachos

Hello y’all and happy Friday!  Is it really November? Because I think Houston missed the memo!  It has been warm and muggy here all week!  Yesterday it was 88* F! It is supposed to be a smidge cooler over the next 10 days…and by that I mean in the 70s, and possibly the upper 60s!  Not that I am complaining, I am a warm weather girl…but I would like to wear some of my new long sleeved workout gear and not be a sweaty hot mess!
Since the weather wants to pretend it isn’t fall, I have been making up for that in the kitchen! I know many people go CRAZY over the pumpkin spice lattes and other fall-like drinks, but I would rather eat my pumpkin products!  (Although, if you offer me a pumpkin chai latte I won’t say no 😉 )
So I have been doing some experimenting and trying to be better about using up leftovers and all the produce I seem to bring home from the grocery store lately.  I happened upon some cool pumpkin chips and I was totally inspired by our theme this week to make them into a yummy meal!

I am linking up once again with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit!! Our theme this week is nachos!

I have to admit when I think of nachos (I am imagining the round chips and cheese sauce that you find at the movies or a sporting event) I am not thinking healthy at all!  But this recipe changed my mind!

    This looks awesome!
    I have to tell you, when I saw the title of this before I started reading I was imagining chopped up pumpkin dripping in nacho sauce, and I was like ??? Maybe something my pregnant sister would enjoy:) But then I read it and I was like, wow this sounds amazing, this is definitely something I would love!

    I still wish I was a pumpkin person – pumpkin stuff and coffee are two things that I feel like I miss out on a lot because I don’t like either and everyone goes crazy over them! I bet my boyfriend would love them! Thanks for sharing them! ❤

      I say let the BF have them and you make them with the kind of chips that make you smile 🙂
      I am also not a huge coffee fan, although this summer in Ethiopia both my husband and I really enjoyed the coffee they had.
