Dads and kids cook night: Mexican Fiesta Nachos tutorial

A Children’s Week special. Cameron has handed over the reigns to his son, who’ll be leading this week’s dads and kids cook night.

Grab your sombreros and join us as we cook up a storm and indulge in a Mexican fiesta. Nachos are on the menu, but we encourage you to make a night of it and do the whole shebang; we’re talking guac, corn chips, tacos too!

Message from the head chef’s: Cameron and Josiah

“Nachos is a simple meal that’s is a great one for the kids to learn how to make. There are so many ways to create nachos so this is just one way. The basics are meat, corn chips, cheese. The seasoning is up to you, extra veggies hidden in the meat is up to you. Beans are also optional.”
