Baked Nachos Recipe

We’ve been having great get togethers as summer winds down and braai season comes to a close. No, scrap that. Braai season never really closes in South Africa, it just slows down a little over winter. As a regular accompaniment to our braai Nachos for dipping as a starter or baked as a side is an ever popular party food. Here is a great recipe for baked Nachos that are a favourite with my crowd. It uses premade sauces and dips which just speeds up everything.

Baked Nachos Recipe

1 large bag of Spicy Doritos or real Nacho chips for the purists
1 Jar of pre made Tomato Salsa
1 tub of Sour Cream
1 tub of pre-made guacamole or make you own (recipe below)
1 cup grated cheese

1 ripe avocado
2 cloves garlic crushed
Juice of half a lemon
1/4 tsp ground cumin
Handful of chopped fresh coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Scoop the avo out of the shells into a large wide bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mash till it’s smooth or slightly course if you prefer a bit of texture.

Layer nachos in a shallow ovenproof dish,mix some of the sour cream and salsa together and place dollops of mixture on top of the nachos. Then place dollops of the rest of the salsa and sour cream on the nachos. Place blobs of guacamole in between and cover with grated cheese. Bake on 180 for about 15 to 20 min until cheese is melted. Serve immediately as the nachos gets soggy if left too long. But who am I kidding.It doesn’t last long enough to get soggy anyway… 😄 Enjoy.
