15 January 2008

Vegetarian Nachos

When I plonked this onto the dinner table, my two sons thought they had died and gone to heaven. WE’RE HAVING CHIPS FOR DINNER?

Ingredients for Nacho Sauce

1 brown onion diced finely
½ tablespoon of oil
400g can of red kidney beans, drained
400g can of diced tomatoes, drained
½ small red capsicum
½ small yellow capsicum
¼ teaspoon of fresh chopped oregano
½ teaspoon of fresh chopped basil

Ingredients for Nacho Arrangement

Plain corn chips
Avocado, chopped
Grated cheese
Spring onions for garnish
Sour cream, if you like

Heat the oil and onion until golden. Throw in capsicums, oregano, basil, for 3 minutes. Pour in tomatoes and beans. Cook for 5 minutes, until well heated.

Pre-heat oven to 180 ºC. Arrange corn chips on a large oven-proof dish, pour nacho sauce, throw in chopped avocado, sprinkle grated cheese. Put in oven til cheese has melted (5 minutes). Garnish with sour cream and spring onion.
