These Nachos are a definite winner to serve on platters to share at your dinner party, finger snacks for the boys while they watch the game or to enjoy around the pool with a cold six pack…. But to be honest, no one should ever feel the need to have a reason to make or eat Nachos – they’re the easiest plate of deliciousness with all the flavours and textures under the sun.
You don’t have to follow this recipes to the T, the beauty of Nachos is that you can use almost anything and everything – perfect for using up leftovers, and that’s what makes them so easy, not much effort is required to whip up a masterpiece ( it will look like you have spend hours preparing each component carefully and using precision skills brining the dish together) they don’t have to look sloppy and thrown together, like served out of your local pub – they can be a real crowd pleaser, as they should be!!
Yield: 2 Portions (sharing)
220g Corn Chips – original
150g Tomato – roughly chopped, seeds removed
2 Jalapeno – thinly sliced
60g Red Onion – finely chopped
60g Sweet Corn kernels
100g Red Kidney Beans
220g Beef Mince
1/2 Avocado – ripe, cubed
180ml Sour Cream
200g Cheddar Cheese – grated
20g Spring Onion – sliced diagonally
- Sauté mince in a little oil – season with salt & pepper. Ensure that any excess moisture has cooked out & mince has browned, then add the corn kernels & allow to heat through. Set aside & allow to cool.
- Layer corn chips onto a serving platter, scatter half the mince, half the jalapenos, half the beans, half the tomato, half the corn, half the onion & half the cheddar. Repeat this step forming two layers ontop of on another.
- Place into a hot oven under the grill until the cheese has melted.
- Remove from the oven, top with avo & cream cheese.
- Garnish with sliced spring onion
Note: As I always say, seasoning is vital – ensure to season any raw or ready to eat items, in this case it would be the tomato, beans, avo & onion. By poorly seasoning with salt & pepper, any dish can be a real let down because the flavours have not been enhanced.
