As the country is in the grips of a heatwave at the moment, I’ve decided to forgo cooking big dishes and make something small and light for dinner. The nachos didn’t turn out small, but they were light and refreshing and tasted delicious!
For the nachos:
I used a nacho kit from Tesco, £2 for 4 people’s worth of tortillas and two salsas, but feel free to buy the ingreedients seperately
Homemade guacamole (ripe large tomato, 2 ripe avocados, lime juice, half a red onion, coriander and chilli to taste. Mash it all up and season)
Violife cheese slices with olive oil (they don’t melt, but they taste SO GOOD)
Arange the tortilla chips and sauces in layers, top with cheese and bake in oven for 10-ish minutes. I add the extra salsa and guac after it’s out of the oven.
For the fajita veg:
assortment of veg (kidney beens, corn, sweet pepper, onion, garlic, mushrooms, etc)
fajita cooking sauce and spices (got mine from aldi)
Cook the veg in a bit of oil for a few minutes, then add the fajita spices and sauce. Add nutritious yeast and let it simmer for a few minutes. Add to nachos.
