My Shot ! Day 3

So here is a list of daily themes for Photo A Day May :

and now for the picture :

Day 4


Friday nights are all about FUN in our house so today’s theme was an easy one to capture.It is traditionally nachos and movies night at our place  ( a relatively less elaborate meal to give the head chef at Mumchic HQ a well-deserved break after a gruelling week).Of late, the fab 2 have been actively involved in the preparation and I must say they make excellent sous-chefs. Ah the lengths I will go to raise decent,self sufficent boys !

For those of you who couldn’t read past the first line and can’t stop salivating at the sight of those nachos, here’s how we do it – it really is very simple. Please bear in mind, these nachos are not fancy, but just perfect for when you don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen, better yet , train the kids up on this fuss free recipe.

Fun Friday Nachos

You will need :

A bag of original corn chips

A jar of Salsa

Half a can of baked beans in tomato sauce or refried beans

3/4-1 cup shredded cheddar/tasty or mexican cheese mix if available

Chilli flakes

A microwave

Extras :

Finely chopped onions,jalapenos,shredded lettuce,sliced olives,sour cream, guacamole

How to :

Mix the baked beans with salsa , we find a full can of beans a bit too much but you can go ahead ad use the full can(any leftover bean/salsa mix can always be used the next day).

Spread a layer of corn chips on a microwave safe plate – about 1/3 bag.

Evenly spread  half the bean salsa.

Add another 1/3 bag of corn chips creating a heaped, towerish look.

Top with the remaining bean salsa and shredded cheese.

Sprinkle some chilli flakes and chopped jalapenos if you like  a bit of bite.

Microwave for about 90 seconds or until the cheese has melted.

Top with any of the above listed extras or serve as is !

The satisfied grin on a certain sous-chef’s dial tells the rest of the story – Have a fabulous weekend all.
