Our Guide to Ultimate Nachos
Nachos can be as easy or as difficult as you want them to be. However, essential components include Tortilla chips (obviously!), cheese, salsa and Guacamole. But we encourage that when it comes to nachos more is more! So this is our version...
Salted Tortilla chips
avocados x 2
red onions x 2
medium tomatoes x6
garlic x 1 clove
coriander (1/2 bunch)
Sour cream (one pot)
Making the salsa
Chop the tomatoes, one of the onions and half of the coriander to roughly the same size. chop finely or into larger pieces depending on whether you want it chunkier or smoother.
Then finely chop the garlic clove.
Combine all your ingredients together in a bowl.
Add the juice of half a lime (save your other half.)
Keep in the fridge until you make your nachos.
Making the Guacamole
finely chop one onion and two tomatoes.
Roughly chop all of the avocados in to 1cm chunks.
Roughly chop the coriander.
Put everything you’ve chopped so far in to a bowl. take the back of a fork and mash the ingredients together, you’re trying to make it really smooth, but just so it comes to together.
add the juice of other half of the lime and a touch of salt if desired.
Making your Nachos
Now the fun bit!
grate the cheese (when you think you’ve done enough, do some more!)
The key to good nachos is layering!
So take a large plate/bowl/platter and spread a handful of the tortilla chips over the base of the plate. Then sprinkle over a handful of cheese.
You then need to keep repeating these layers until you’ve ran out of tortilla chips, but remember to leave enough cheese for the top!
You then need to put a few big spoonfuls of salsa on top of your glorious mountain of cheese and tortillas.
Cover everything in (you guessed it) more cheese and put under the grill for about 5 minutes. But keep an eye on it because a stray chip can catch!
To finish, dollop generous spoonfuls of your guacamole and sour cream.
To add something a little extra special, try making a slow cooked chilli or add an acidic punch with jalapenos and pickled pink onions!
