Nachos, What spices should i put in?

Recommended Posts

Paprika, cayenne and chilli. A bit of cumin is good too.

This.

 

But I would make sure you have garlic and onion as well.

 

Salt and Pepper for standard seasoning.

 

(Cumin is a must not an add-on)

Try Nacho cheese, I heard they go well with nachos. :-P

I fry some finely diced onions with Paprika, Cayenne, Cumin, fresh cut garlic and some finely diced fresh chilli. I add some fine capsicum, and then a tin of tomatoes and kidney beans.

 

If I'm doing meat nachos, I add that then too.

 

After the meat is browned, I'll add some corn.

 

If I feel like a sauce with more body, I'll add re-fried beans as well.

 

Then I put a touch of vinegar in, and let it simmer and reduce it.

 

In the mean time, I do one layer of chips with a mix of Mozerella and Cheddar, in the oven, till the cheese browns

 

Then I ladle the mixture into onto the chips, and add another layer of corn chips and cheese, and oven bake, then serve.

 

I loves it.

Cumin, chilli, paprika, allspice, fresh coriander, a squeeze of lime. If you're making your own salsa, you'll be using red onion, tomato and cucumber. I forgot jalapeno, of course. Fresh, not pickled.

I always make a guacamole for nachoes, i hate the stuff that is premade and in a jar by Old El Paso! It is simple and quick to make, just chuck all the ingrediants in a food processer and whiz it up until its a smooth consistancy.

 

 

1 large avacado

generous splash of olive oil

juice of half a lemon, more if you think it needs it

few splashes of tabasco sauce

1 whole red chilli or a teaspoon of minced chilli

2 cloves garlic, more if you want it

salt to taste

 

Whiz it up and you have the best guacamole!

What about the beans, Cheeky?

 

We put the beans in with the beef mince, just use the coles brand tin, does the job nicely!

 

i cant have nachoes without sour cream and guacamole, nom nom nom.
