    Absolutely. The only thing I'd suggest is make your own chips. (just deep fry some cut up corn tortillas*) Not necessarily more healthy but certainly more delicious!

    * a quick google turned up this recipe for baked corn tortilla chips. Not sure how good it is (the reviews claim quite good), but baked homemade chips would turn nachos into a relatively healthy meal. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20...ortilla-chips/

    Of the three macronutrients--carbohydrates, fats, proteins--only fat has no effect on blood sugar or insulin. It is completely neutral. Fat is not the problem, as long as it a naturally-occurring one, and not an industrial seed oil or an artificially hydrogenated oil. Old myths die hard.

    Thank you for such an important public service announcement. I will now stop feeling guilty about making homemade tortilla chips and fried potatoes as part of my weekend breakfasts!

    Depends on the oil used for frying -- and the tortilla dough and potatoes most definitely have an effect on blood glucose, particularly the "white" versions of both.

    I wasn't going to mention that--why harsh the buzz? And then there's acrylamide...
    Avocado oil, coconut oil, and lard are all good for frying.
