Create a platter of fully loaded nachos your guests are bound to love!
Nothing like a platter of fully loaded nachos to get a party started! So easy to make and guaranteed to be a huge hit whether you are entertaining friends, as pre-BBQ snack or to share while watching football. Making fresh salsa and guacamole is the key to success in this recipe as the store-bought counterparts never taste anywhere near as good!
This recipe is suitable for vegetarians, but you can add optional extras like bacon, cooked chicken, pulled pork or spicy beef to make these even more over the top!
To make the guacamole put all the ingredients in a blender or mini chopper and blend until smooth. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to your taste.
Mix all the ingredients for the salsa together in a bowl and season to taste.
Arrange half the chips on a large oven safe ceramic platter or on a baking tray lined with foil. Sprinkle half the cheese over the nachos and then sprinkle half the black beans over them.
Add the remaining nachos and the rest of the cheese and black beans.
Put in the oven and keep an eye on the nachos. The cheese will soon start to melt. If it looks like you might want to add more cheese, then sprinkle some more over them now.
Cook for about five minutes until cheese has melted. Spread the salsa over the top then add dollops of sour cream and guacamole. Sprinkle with the sliced jalapeños, coriander and paprika if using. Serve immediately.
If you have any salsa or guacamole left over, serve in little bowls alongside the nachos for extra dipping!
