A great meal to throw together when you're limited on time and ingredients. My salsa was more like a loose tomato paste (got it as part of a fajitas pack) but combined with spring onions, cheese and avocado, it made a delicious topping for the nachos.

Very easy to make and a good accompaniment for a Mexican night.

I think the idea behind this type of "recipe" Phlebas, is to encourage people to "have a go while having fun" Lighten up!!

Made baked nachos for the first time, and came out really well! I skipped the chili, had a spicy salsa, and substituted spring onions for lots of fresh, chopped cilantro. Was great!

So quick to make. Perfect whilst waiting for the BBQ. No left overs.

Not really a recipe, more of a basic assembly job... If you're going to slice up some spring onions then you may as well chop up a little bit more and make your own salsa - it will taste much better than any salsa in a jar.
