Lazy Nachos

When most people think of nachos... they think of mounds of grilled cheese over corn chips which are topped with mince, salsa, guacamole and sour cream...

Yeah, I'm WAY too lazy for that most of the time!
This is one of my laziest meals

You will need: (Recipe generously feeds two people)
1 packet of original dorito chips, or corn chip of choice
2 avocados, mashed with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 300g jar of mild/medium/hot salsa

Whatever vegetables you have in the fridge, plus a tin of re-fried beans and a packet of taco spice blend
I use -
1 small onion
2 tablespoons of garlic
1/4 cup of broccoli
1/4 cup of carrot
1/4 cup of spinach
1 tin of lentils, drained
1 tin of refried beans
1 packet of taco spice blend

To make the mince:
Add onion, garlic, broccoli, carrot and spinach to a food processor and blend until mince-like
add blended vegetable mixture with a few tablespoons of oil, and packet of taco spice blend to a hot pan and cook until soft (5-10 minutes)
Add lentils and re-fried beans and mix until well incorporated, and your mince is ready!

To assemble:
Organise dorito chips onto a place, top with mince, then top with salsa, and top with fresh mashed avocado, done!

If you want sour cream... and can't be bothered making a tofu one, you could always grab some tofutti sour cream, it's equally as lazy and works a treat.

I don't even miss grilled cheese on my nachos :)
