Paleo Nachos with Ground Elk & Green Apple Guacamole (AIP-friendly)

AIP Fiesta!

AIP Fiesta!

There is no need for deprivation on an Autoimmune Protocol!

Start by making the chips, then you can cook the meat & assemble the guacamole while they bake. Half an hour from start to fiesta!


Nacho recipe from Well-fed 2 by Melissa Joulwan.

  • 2 green plantains
  • Salt
  • Turmeric

Preheat oven to 350.

Line 2 or 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

To peel plantains, cut through the skin lengthwise with a sharp knife & remove the skin in strips. Slice the plantains on the thinnest setting with a mandolin slicer, and arrange in in slightly overlapping chips of 3 & 4 plantains each.

Sprinkle with salt & turmeric, then bake for 20 minutes until brown & crispy.


Of course you can use any meat…

  • Bacon fat or coconut oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1lb ground elk
  • Dried basil, oregano & thyme

Brown the onion in fat. Add the ground elk & herbs. Fry until cooked through.

Green Apple Guacamole

Feel free to add garlic if you like, but our AIP is garlic-free.

  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 1 granny smith apple, finely diced
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup minced cilantro

Combine & serve with warm ground elk & crispy plantain nachos.
