I feel like feeding a crowd shouldn’t be hard and Nachos are such a simple way to feed a crowd, or a family. They are fun and don’t have to be heaving with sour cream and cheese. A small sprinkle of cheese is great for bite, I also made a quick guacamole. I added a heap of fresh tomatoes and herbs with some lettuce to make wraps if people didn’t feel like corn chips (but who doesn’t?!). This recipe is so adaptable, change up the spices, omit things, add things… I found mushrooms in the fridge after we had eaten this and thought they would have gone well in the mix.
Good quality corn chips
Cherry tomatoes (different colours!)
Guacamole (mash up avocado with small diced red onion, bit of garlic, squeeze lime, sea salt)
Feta cheese crumbled up or queso fresco if you can get your hot little mitts on it
cup black beans (prepared as per pack instructions OR a can of pre done ones)
diced brown onion
finely diced tomato
finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
squeeze of lime juice
Soften the onion and garlic in a little olive oil on a LOW heat, give it time to soften – this will take a good 10 mins or so then add the spices. Add the black beans and tomato and literally just warm through, squeeze some lime on top and sprinkle sea salt to taste. Serve warm or store in the fridge as a cold dip for later.
