Nachos in a minute
Well, I’m not sure this is a cheat as this is the way we make nachos anyway. The essentials are tortilla chips, cheese and tomato salsa.
So, if you forgo making your own chips, salsa, or guacamole – or cooked chicken or minced beef, salad or any of the other extra layers that are added in the restaurant – this will always be one of the quickest snacks it’s possible to make.
Spread your chips out on a plate, smother in grated cheese and dollop over generous splodges of store-bought salsa. Microwave for 1 minute (more or less, depending on quantity and oven settings). Scatter olives and chopped coriander over the nachos and serve.
A tasty cheat made in an instant!
At the heart of Mexican cooking is a proper Mexican corn tortilla.
This was an improvised quick dinner. I did not plan to post it, but it was so good I photographed it while we were eating it!
