These healthy nachos are ridiculously fast to prepare and completely sidestep the packaged Mexican sauces, which contain about two teaspoons of sugar per serve.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4-6 pita wraps, cut into ‘chips’
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 x 400g tin red kidney beans, drained and well rinsed
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup mixed parsley and coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Preheat oven grill to 180ºC. Place pita ‘chips’ on trays in a single layer and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Place in the oven and grill for about three to four minutes or until lightly brown.

In a bowl mix chopped tomato, beans, onion, parsley, coriander and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt, to taste. Set aside.

Mash together the avocado, feta and lemon juice in a bowl and sprinkle with salt.

Place a layer of the pita chips on the bottom of a plate or large casserole dish and lightly sprinkle with cheese, followed by bean salsa mix and more cheese.

Place in oven and grill for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Scoop onto plates and top with avocado and feta mix.
