Mexican food is a favourite in my home…nachos, tacos, quesadillas, tortillas, enchiladas and the list goes on.
I love to play around with Mexican flavours and I enjoy being as creative as possible with the dishes. Mexican food makes a perfect appetizer or light meal for the weekends.
Nachos are great food for game day or as a light dinner on a Saturday night.
Try out these Pizza Nachos which are quick and easy to make.
For more complex flavours and taste, This nachos salad makes you feel like you eating a bowl of healthy goodness as it is loaded with Raw vegetables. The best part is that it has the comfort food feel of melted cheese, beans and crunchy nacho chips….yum…I feel like making a bowl RIGHT NOW !
