This nachos is a favourite in our house. A healthy (plant based) take on the much loved Mexican dish. We use oil free wholemeal pita bread to make our ‘chips’ but you could also use good quality corn chips.

The bean mix is super easy to prepare and if you make double, this can be used on toasted sandwiches the next day or as a Bolognese alternative. The kids love this nachos sprinkled with nutritional yeast flakes and I love it topped with siracha hot sauce!!
