I know what your thinking? Nachos for breakfast?! But trust me this dish although naughty, is soooooo nice! I first made this Breakfast Brunch Nacho's for friends when they stayed over after a good night out.
What should I cook when hungover?
We woke up late and needed something to sober us up.
The obvious choice was bacon sarnies, but no bread, or bacon! So I worked with what I had in the fridge and cupboards!
We had Pancetta left in the fridge from our Fish Chowder. So that was my starting block. Tortilla chips had been left over from our nibbles from the evening before.
I am telling you now, this was the perfect hangover cure. I have since made it for lunches dinners and family gatherings it goes down a treat every time.
Crispy crunch of the nachos smothered in melted gooey cheese, the only thing you won't like about this dish is when it's all gone!
Alternative ingredients for Breakfast Brunch Nachos
You can mix this up in many ways!
Switch Pancetta for Bacon, Chorizo, smoked sausage, ham.
Switch Shallot for onion
No fresh tomatoes? use tinned!
Instead of Black Bean's you can use pretty much any other tinned bean, kidney beans, black eye beans, pinto beans, borlotti beans, haricot beans or adzuki beans, to name a few.
We love Sherry Vinegar with our nachos. A rich sweet-bitter taste, it can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar or cider vinegar.
Replace Coriander for your favourite herb, Basil, Parsley, Chives, Oregano, Rosemary or Thyme?
Franks Red hot sauce substitutes, Tabasco, Sriracha, or Gia Chilli Puree. All 3 are spicer so you will have to add some water and vinegar to them before adding.
Cheese- Use cheese which is good for melting, cheddar, Mozzarella, Gouda or Gruyere.
How do you host a perfect brunch?
See our recipe card below and illustrated step by step college above, on how to make this awesome Breakfast Brunch Nachos.
We used a cast iron pan to cook this in, just like many of our dishes! Highly recommend the well know Le Creuset Casserole Dish the initial high cost is eye-watering, however, it will last you a lifetime, so well worth the expense. Used pretty much daily in our home, the ability to transfer from hob to oven makes it so versatile.
