Recipe type: Nachos
Serves: Serves 4
Ingredients
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 jalapeño chilli
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 20 g coriander
  • 2 x 400g cans red kidney beans
  • 100 g smoked cheddar
  • 2 teaspoons Mexican spice mix, or to taste
  • 100 ml water
  • 230 g white corn tortilla strips
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 1 corn cob
  • 1 lime
  • 100g light sour cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Finely chop red onions. Deseed and finely chop jalapeno chilli. Deseed and chop tomatoes. Wash coriander well, including roots, then pick and coarsely chop coriander sprigs. Finely chop coriander stems and roots. Rinse and drain red kidney beans. Coarsely grate cheddar.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large deep fry-pan over medium-high heat. Cook half the onion for 7-8 minutes or until softened and lightly coloured. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Add 2 teaspoons Mexican spice mix and half the chilli and stir for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the beans, half the chopped tomato and 100ml water. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Simmer for 4-5 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Scatter half the corn chips in a 1.2L, ovenproof dish then top with half the bean mixture and half the cheese. Repeat with remaining chips, bean mixture and cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts and nachos are crisp.
  5. Meanwhile, de-seed and finely chop the green capsicum. Remove corn husk and cut kernels from the cob. Finely grate the lime zest and squeeze the juice.
  6. Place the remaining tomato, jalapeño and red onion in a bowl with the coriander, capsicum, corn, lime zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper. Mix gently to combine. Serve the nachos with the salsa and 100g sour cream.
