This is a recipe I created after a friend described some amazing Vegetarian Nachos she ate from a food truck! Took me a couple of trials to get the balance of flavours right, by my whole family loves this (although that could be more to do with the fact that it's a treat to have chips for dinner!).
You don't have to put cheese on top- it's still super yummy without it, especially if you serve it with guacamole! I fry up all the ingredients in the pan, put some cheese on top and place under the grill (broiler) to melt the cheese. I serve it with corn chips on the side. I'm not a fan of putting it all in a dish with the chips under the filling and putting it in the oven- I don't like the soggy chips on the bottom and the burnt chips sticking out at the top! Up to you, though! We use plain corn chips (ingredients should be just corn, oil and salt), and organic if possible. Blue corn chips can be a fun change- whilst quite normal in America, they haven't become as popular in Australia. These are also made with another American-staple : Black Beans. These are not common on Aussie supermarket shelves, but I get mine from my local organic food store. If you struggle to find them, use Kidney Beans.
If you don't want to use cheese or corn chips, this is also a really nice meal served over brown rice.
I find this is enough for two meals for our family of 4. I freeze the second portion for later for a quick and easy meal.
