Buenas Nachos!

Or 'Buenas Noches' as they say in Mexico! A quick tea tonight with Nachos followed by Fajitas. Again, a cheat was in order in terms of a jar of salsa to go over the nachos. I do often make my own to try to reduce salt / sugar and artificial gloop, but was too hungry by the time we arrived home at 8!

Simple Salsa

jar chopped tomatoes / passata
mixed herbs
pepper - chopped finely
onions - chopped finely
chilli and garlic to taste

Gently fry off the peppers and onions, and garlic if desired.
When softened, mix together with the other ingredients and pour over the nachos.
Sprinkle grated cheese over the top and bake for about 10 minutes at 180 degrees.

Fajitas were simply Mexican seasoning, strips of beef, peppers and onions, all wrapped tightly in soft tortilla and smeared with soured cream.

Thanks must go to my boyfriend, though, who cooked a delicious tuna steak last night. He marinated it in lemon juice and crushed peppercorns before pan frying on both sides. He seared it until the outside was coloured and flavoursome, then served it up on a bed of 'bottom of the fridge rice salad'. (See post from 23.01.09 for recipe - it tastes yummier than it sounds!)
Thanks hun!
