Thermobexta’s 20 minute Nachos


This is a great Friday night recipe, when you’re tired and just want dinner on the table fast, with little effort. Made with ingredients you will most likely have on hand (other than probably the corn chips), it’s convenient and thrifty! This recipe was inspired by my wonderful sister, Claire xx

150g cheddar cheese, diced into 1.5cm cubes (optional)
150g onion, quartered
3 garlic cloves
30g extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbspn ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
a couple of shakes of chilli powder
700g passata
1 tsp granulated sea salt
1 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
2 x 400g tins legumes, drained, rinsed (such as lentils, kidney beans, cannellini beans, four bean mix, etc.)
sour cream, diced avocado, torn coriander leaves (to serve, optional)

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place corn chips on a large, lined tray. Set aside.

2. Place cheese in mixer bowl. Grate for 4 seconds/speed 7/MC on. Transfer to a small bowl. Set aside.

  1. Yum yum yum! Perfect quick weekend dinner. Added a bit of extra chilli and some cayenne and was perfect level of heat for us. Thanks!


  2. Made this last night instead of taco Tuesday! So yummy and quick and easy. Didn’t use all of the sauce so froze the rest for next time. I put sauce and cheese on to chips before putting in the oven to melt the cheese 🌮🧀
