Nachos with salad

We have friends who would be happy to eat this for every meal of the rest of their life; while other friends... regard it as some kind of torture.

I love it due to the flavour, the freshness of all the salad, the number of toppings you can add, the combination of food groups etc. etc.

Gently fry onion, add garlic, tomato paste, sweet paprika, a few ground cloves and plenty of ground cumin.

Add massel beef stock powder, cooked borlotti and or kidney beans, a large tin of crushed tomatoes, a chilli, fresh oregano, a bit of salt and pepper and a square or two of plain dark chocolate (yes, chocolate).

For a nice thick sauce you may also like to add a tin of refried beans, otherwise you can mash some of your cooked beans.

Its great if you can leave it on a very low heat for a while to let the flavours really meld together.

We eat this with corn chips, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sour cream, guacamole and some tabasco sauce or jalapeno peppers.
