Look, four food groups! Ever popular nachos get an adult twist with the addition of goat cheese and Sriracha hot sauce. Substantial enough as supper for one and a good size for an appetizer for two.


1/2 cup (125 mL) cooked chicken, chopped
9 tortilla chips, large
2 oz (60 g) goat cheese, soft, 21% MF
1 plum tomato, diced
1/4 yellow pepper, medium, diced
1 green onion, sliced
1/2 cup (125 mL) cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup (125 mL) canned black beans, drained
1 tsp (5 mL) Sriracha hot chili sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) thyme, fresh
1/4 cup (60 mL) chives, fresh
1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro sprigs, fresh


1 Chop cooked chicken into small pieces and set aside.
2 Spread corn tortilla chips with soft goat cheese. Lay out over dinner size plate so not overlapping.
3 Dice tomato and yellow pepper. Slice green onion and grate cheddar cheese. Sprinkle over corn chips.
4 Sprinkle cooked blacked beans over and squirt Sriracha hot sauce over.
5 Microwave on high power for two minutes. Alternately, broil under pre-heated broiler set to high for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they burn easily.
6 Garnish with fresh herbs like thyme, snipped chives and sprigs of cilantro and serve.
