Nachos @ Sheffield


Due to James being at work from 5 to 9 - I was left to have dinner on my own sigh - nothing special and nothing worth taking a picture of. I just had a salad with some KFC spicy wings haha it was a balanced diet, in my defence!

Also, after every shift, James gets free pizza from his work - so that would have been his dinner anyway, but obviously we couldn't go without not eating together! So we decided to make nachos, for the love of my guacamole!

So, before James came home, I started prepping and did the main cooking part when he arrived so it was still fresh and hot!

All ingredients and instructions on how I created the nachos - everything on italic is what we did/used instead of instructed. 

Super Nachos

Ingredients:

2 bags corn tortilla chips in 2 colors or different flavors - we used cool and lightly salted flavours.

Place tortilla chips around/in a oven safe tray, place grated cheese on top and place in the grill to melt the cheese. 

Salsa:

- 4 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped, for medium to hot heat level - we bought a jar of chopped ones and used as many as we wanted 
- 1 small white onion, chopped
2 handfuls, parsley leaves, finely chopped
- salt and pepper

Chop all ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Leave on the side. 

Guacamole:

- 2 avocados 
- juice from one lime
- salt and pepper

Squash avocados and mix in the ingredients in a bowl. Leave on the side. 

Mince beef topping:

- 1 packet of mince beef
- 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of dark chilli powder
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped - we bought a jar of chopped ones and used as many as we wanted
- 1 teaspoon of salt

Heat up a pan, put the extra virgin olive oil. Fry the garlic, onion and jalapeƱo pepper. Add in the mince and cook throughout - adding the salt, pepper and chilli powder.

When cooked, place on top of the melted cheese, add the salsa and guacamole on the sides and add more cheese on top!

Side note: the second James helped, he messed up - all I told him to do was out the chips and cheese in the grill to melt the cheese - 1. He closed the door and 2. He forgot about it and burnt it 

Boys boys boys - useless hahaha joking!
