Quick And Delicious
Home Made Nachos
May 8, 2015

We usually have this on a Friday or Saturday night.  It’s our ‘go to’ treat with the kids.  They love it and even better, it’s one that my husband has got very good at making!   Infact I had to ring him to check I got the recipe right.

We make it even easier by using a leftover bolognese sauce that we ‘mexicanise’.  I know – not very proper but it works and… it does save some time in the kitchen.

Note:  It’s tricky finding corn chips that are GMO friendly or not baked in vegetable oils, that can lead to cell corrupting trans fats.  The brand I like to use are Chipman Chips in Australia.  They are baked in sustainable palm oil (I hope so) and are GMO free.  


Preparation:  15 minutes

Baking:  5 – 10 minutes

Serves:  4
