Nifty Notion #2: Simple Meal Idea - Nachos

This one is a family favourite around here. Most of you are probably familiar with what’s involved. I am going to share how we like to make them. It’s quick, it’s simple, and makes minimum mess too (bonus points for that!).

You will need:
1-2 packets of plain corn chips (depending how many mouths you need to feed)
1 jar salsa (we like mild)
1 tin brown lentils
Grated cheese
Fresh herbs
1-2 Avocados
Salad greens of your choice

What to do:
  1. Preheat oven to 180oC/ 350F
  2. Drain and rinse lentils. Place in a small mixing bowl and stir in salsa.
  3. In a large baking dish (I’m feeding a family of boys here) place a layer of corn chips.
  4. Top with a third of the lentil and salsa mix. Sprinkle on some cheese.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have about 3 layers worth or have used up all the ingredients.
  6. Cook until cheese has melted.
  7. Top with fresh herbs. (We like to use parsley, shallots, and oregano from our garden).
  8. Mash avocado.
  9. Serve with a generous dollop of avocado on top and salad on the side.
  10. Enjoy!

My dinner tonight. Yummo!

  1. Yet another thing we have in common :) This looks delicious and I have never tried it the way you make it, so I will have to do that! I always do mine with a can of black beans or pinto beans and stuff like green onion and black olives. Can't wait to try your version!


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear what you're thinking!
