For the beans
– ⅔ of a tin of 400g cooked black beans, water included
– ½ small brown onion, finely diced
– 1 garlic clove, minced
– 1 morita dried chilli flakes, or whole, deseeded, de-stemmed and chopped. If you can’t find it, use chipotle in adobo, or chipotle paste. If you can’t find any of these, just use finely diced fresh chilli
– 20g rapeseed oil or butter or lard
– Sea salt to taste
– 1 bag of Blanco Niño Tortilla Chips
– 200g of beans
– 60g of around 1 cup of good melting grated cheese – we suggest using Gouda
– 60g or 4 tbsp of greek yoghurt
– 100g or ⅔ cup of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
– 30g or 2 tbsp of fermented hot sauce like Sriracha
– 40g or 4 tbsp of pickled jalapeño rings
– 40g or 4 tbsp of pickled red onions
– 40g of 4 tbsp of sliced radishes
– The green parts of 2 spring onions, sliced thinly
– 10g or 2 handfuls of coriander, leaves and stems picked by hand (not sliced)
For the beans
– Cook the onions, garlic and crushed chilli in a pot with the oil or fat at low heat for about 10 minutes
– Add the beans and their cooking water and let it reduce at low heat for about 10 minutes or until the liquid is visibly thicker
– You can leave the beans as they are, or you can pulse them with blender for a couple of seconds to make them creamier, but keep them chunky
– Season with salt
– Heat up the oven at 200ºC
– In a baking dish, pour the chips and spread them evenly
– Follow by adding the beans and cheese and get the dish in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted
– Take the nachos out and finish by making your own Jackson Pollock nachos with all the toppings
