NACHOS - It is another meal that I love - OK, so it is not healthy, but OK every once in a while. The only thing that annoys me about making these for one person is that I waste most of a bottle of tomato pasta sauce!

So I decided to make some salsa instead and also make a nacho cheese sauce instead of just putting cheese throughout. It turned out really yummy and I ate the whole lot which I had made for two meals!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 1-2

For the salsa
2 tomatoes
1 green chilli
¼ tbsp lemon juice
1 pinch black pepper
½ small onion
Coriander, chopped - to taste

For the nacho sauce
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp plain flour
½ cup milk
About ¾ cup cheese of choice
Pinch chili powder

For the nachos
¼ to ½ packet nachos

For the salsa
Char the onion on a gas flame - this is optional. Turn it around on the flame until the skin is blistered but not burnt.


Allow to cool for 15 minutes - this will give it a smokey flavour.

Peel the onion and chop it very finely.

Chop the tomatoes very finely, and mix with the onion, chilis, and coriander.

Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and allow to stand for 15 minutes or more in the fridge while you prepare the rest.


For the cheese sauce
Add the butter and flour into a saucepan and heat until it bubbles. Cook for about a minute and then whisk in the milk.

Turn the heat up slightly and continue stirring until the mixture thickens. Turn off the heat.

Add the cheese - you may need to turn the heat back on low if the cheese does not melt.


Once the cheese is melted, stir in the chili powder or flakes and add pepper to taste. If the sauce is too thick, add some more milk though I left the sauce very thick.

For the nachos
Line a pie dish or similar with baking paper and spread a layer of corn chips on the bottom.

Add a layer of the salsa.

Add a layer of the cheese and spread as best you can.


Repeat this till all ingredients are used up.

Add a bit of grated cheese to the top and cook at around 180° fan forced or 160° for about 20 minutes.
