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.
