As per my menu plan for the week , we had nachos for dinner last night. Like everything I prepare on weekdays, it is quick and easy.
I make my own refried beans from the recipe here using dried kidney beans. I freeze the mixture in 500g tubs for future use.
Last night I used tinned crushed tomatoes but you can use chopped fresh tomatoes or even a bit of diluted tomato paste.
Here is the first layer – corn chips, refried beans, tomato and then grated cheese.
Add layers until desired quantity is reached.
This is 3 layers ready to go into the oven. I use 2 small Pyrex casserole lids as I find the Pyrex easier to clean than a metal tray. This used half a packet of corn chips and is a substantial meal for 2 adults. I serve this with home-made guacamole and yoghurt on the side.
Total preparation and cooking time is about 20 minutes.
