I love nachos, and I don’t eat them often. I think we all think they are pretty unhealthy, but actually deep down we know they make us happy on the inside with their mix of crunchy and creamy textures and spicy and soft flavours.
Also, what is not to love about a dinner that can be done, every bit of it, in less than ten minutes? Who doesn’t love that? And clear up? Practically none!
But I don’t really think our digestions work well with the traditional version, too much going on in one plate for our poor stomachs to know how to handle it. So I have been playing about with alternatives that still give all the happy Mexican joy feelings, without the lying down on the couch feeling bloated side of things.
Of course, this means bringing in my true love, chickpeas. Simply warmed through and smushed (do you know what I mean?) with a little water and some fajita spice mix (ideally one with no added sugar or other unnecessary add ins like this one). Now if you are not big on cheese then simply top the nachos with this, smash up an avocado with some oil and chilli flakes, squeeze of lemon or lime and top. Happy days!
