Practicing Eating Nachos

Ten days and I'll be in Mexico! WHOOHOO!!! So when I was questioned about the wisdom of eating the tasty morsel known as a Nachos Parma (on account of recent difficulties fitting into my jeans), I thought unusually quickly and said "well I have to practice eating nachos for my trip!"

(Did anyone out there buy that?? Any takers??)

If you want to make it at home you'll need a chicken schnitty (non-Aussie translation: schnitzel), some nap sauce (that's Napoli sauce, which I think Americans call Marinara, which never made sense to me because that's what we call a tomato-based seafood sauce), some corn chips and some cheese. Plus sour cream and guacamole to go on top.

Cook the schnitty, top with heated nap sauce, CCs and cheese, grill/microwave to melt cheese, and serve with sour cream and guacamole. And salad, of course!

If I was making it myself I'd probs use some medium-hot salsa with red kidney beans mixed through in place of the nap sauce, and go a bit lighter on the sour cream and guacamole.

But as is, it's already practically fat free, right?? RIGHT???!!


  1. OH MAH GAH!

    1. Nachos are one of those special food groups that can fit in around everything else. That's why they come in small pieces. It's like Tetris!

  2. yum! Enjoy Mexico .... Kiss my country when you get there! :)

  3. I love Mexican food! Visiting from the SITS food blogger thread, nice to meet you :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Rachel :) I'm going to be pretty inactive for the next few months as I'm going travelling (including Bloggy Boot Camp in Vegas! Whoohoo!) but I'll be back to it in December. Just had a peek at your blog and love the mix of travel and food - very close to my own heart!


Give me the loves! Erm, I mean, comment here...
