How to make it

  1. For this recipe first warm up the Refried Beans in a small saucepan with a bit of water. Simmer on low heat until the beans have a sauce-like consistency. Remove from the heat once they are warm.
  2. Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 180 ˚C. Then add a layer of parchment paper in the air fryer tray, just enough to cover the base and a bit of the walls. This will make it easier to remove the Nachos from the tray once ready.
  3. Now add 1/2 a pack of the Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips and layer them at the bottom of the tray, add half of the beans all over the tortilla chips and half of the grated cheese. Repeat the same process with the remaining tortilla chips, beans and cheese. Place the tray back in the Air Fryer and cook for 6 minutes at 180˚C, until the cheese is lovely and melted.
  4. When they are ready, remove the nachos from the air fryer pulling the ends of the parchment paper, place them directly into a bowl or platter. Top your nachos with spoonfuls of Smoky Chipotle Salsa and a few  Fire Roasted Serranos. Serve them with the coriander scattered on top and lime or lemon wedges on the side.
