After School Nachos

Nachos are the perfect after school snack. I love this salsa recipe because I sneak in some veggies and the kids have no idea. It’s full of flavour and super healthy too! The kids love it with my homemade white cheese sauce it just makes this recipe extra yummy.

Any left over salsa can be stored in the fridge for a few days and be used for pizza and pasta.

You can find the full recipe below.
