Cooks tip

Why not try minced pork or lamb? Swap the red kidney beans for chickpeas next time. Try adding jalapeños, olives, lettuce, tomatoes and serve with sour cream and guacamole. Did you know? Nachos originated in Mexico and is a popular dish which can be served as an appetiser or as a main meal.
