Nacho station

This is a popular Mexican recipe put together by chefs at the GSK staff restaurant – theatre cooking at its best!

I usually make it without the chicken as a starter or side, if you add the chicken this can be served as one of the main meals.

Serve immediately as it can become soggy quite quickly.


  • 8oz (large packet of nacho/tortilla chips) UK sizes
  • 2 tbs oil (optional)
  • 8oz boneless chicken (optional) – sprinkle with taco seasoning and bake in the oven or stove top, cut into 1inch cubes
  • Guacamole – blend together 1 avocado, 6 tbs milk/water, 1 fresh green chillie, salt to taste, 2 tbs fresh green coriander, touch of garlic or buy ready avocado dip from supermarket
  • 6oz sour cream, remove into a bowl, add 4 tbs milk and mix with a fork
  • 8oz cheddar cheese finely grated
  • Salsa – finely chop 4oz tomatoes and 2oz onions and place in a bowl. Add salt to taste, touch of garlic, fresh sliced green coriander, bottled chillie sauce or half tsp red chillie powder, half cup ketchup or 1 tbs tomato puree, and 1 tbs lemon juice or buy ready salsa from supermarket
