Yum, yum. I'll add a bit more cheese next time though. Maybe add some ham to bulk it up a bit.

Fab for a quick tea, however, I like using different cheeses, like grated mature cheddar.

Made this after a hard gym session, it's so easy to throw together when you're tired, but it tastes great! I served mine with a side of corn on the cob, and will make again one day :)

I have made these nachos twice now and everyone loved them. It's so easy and really tasty. So the chicken wasn't entirely plain whilst cooking it I sprinkled on a little paprika. Topping the nachos with with salsa and sour cream really tops the nachos off well. Definitely will be making these again.

The cooking time was far to long. Try 40minutes. Ten minutes before end of cooking, I sprinkled a thin extra level of cheese. Also I put in pitted black olives, and used red pepper instead of the recipe suggestion. Made for a football viewing T.V supper. Easy and tasty. My husband loved it!

So simple & quick and very tasty. My parents don't like spicy food ("it doesn't agree with me") so used a jar of Karyatis roasted red peppers instead of the jalapeños.
