When it comes to snacks and lunch, I’ve been kept on my toes since my son is not at school and home everyday during lockdown so coming up with new ideas has been the main agenda.
So I had come leftover tortillas and decided that nachos was the way to go and so I made up a delicious tempeh chilli, made crispy tortilla chips with the tortillas and bobs your uncle the most amazing snack was made…Add in some avocado, sour cream and more chilli powder and trust me when I say this will become a firm favourite in your house and makes a great snack, lunch or dinner.
If you don’t like it too hot then simply reduce the chilli in it!
Want to bulk it out, then add in some kidney beans or black beans?
