20 Minute Nachos – Fast and Thrifty

nachos on white plate, black background

20 Minute Thermomix Nachos are a great recipe for the end of the week when you’re tired and just want dinner on the table fast and with little effort.

Made with ingredients you will most likely have on hand, it’s convenient and thrifty!

For something different, the topping is also really good on top of rice instead of corn chips. It’s also a great topping for baked potatoes.

This recipe was inspired by my wonderful sister, Claire xx

This nacho sauce was wonderful. I made a salsa with a range of veg I had on hand to serve on the top with sour cream. YUM!
