Nachos Recipe: For Anyone Planning on Entertaining this Weekend


This Nacho dish is a great meal for entertaining guests. I like to cook this dish for when the State of Origin football is on (“Go QLD!”). It really does make good ‘dude food’. I like to use Mexican Chilli beans or red kidney beans but any can of beans could also work. For any leftovers, I like to enjoy with rice the next night.

Cooking Time: More than an hour -The dish is more flavoursome when cooked slowly.

Veggie count: 3 serves per person.
