Very quick post for the corned beef nacho bites tonight as it is our local election and damn it, I want to be out there throwing eggs and shaking up the system. If you haven’t voted, get those wibbly-wobbly legs on the go and vote – doesn’t matter whether you’re voting to ruin the country or who wins The X-Factor – if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. I’m not one for political rioting and fighting the powers that be – that honour belongs to Paul who, if there’s an excuse to put on a tabard and his woolly hat and cause a ruckus, will gladly do so.
I remember a few years back when he used to work for our local council and they were led out on strike over pensions. I begged him to keep a low profile as being sent as a rabble-rouser at a time of redundancies and cuts was never a good idea. Hardly heard a peep from him all day until I was busy making lunch and I heard his voice bellowing from the living room. Oooh he’s back early, what fun, afternoon delight time – no.
No, there was my dear heart, giving it large about ‘GUURLD-PLATED PENSIONS’ live on BBC News at 1pm, live in front of the nation resplendent in his ASDA hoodie. I don’t know why he’s got such fat lips in the photo but we can assume it’s not from suckling on the tit of capitalism. Or something.
Oh, and he managed to throw himself in front of the Chief Executive’s car whilst calling her a scab for crossing the picket line. Here’s a picture of the car all parked up.
Ah at least he has morals. I’d give up workers’ rights and pension pots for the first hunky politician to make a bit of side-eye at me.
Recipe then! Look, we’ve tried to make these look appealing but you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. We thought these would be a nice thing to take along to a taster class (you would assemble them there, mind you, don’t fancy carrying these towers on the bus). Has to be a better option than a bunch of bloody grapes or a quiche with cat hair and fag ash in it. The whole recipe makes enough for 24 discs, so at about 8 syns for the lot, that’s three for a syn. Eeee, you couldn’t make it up!
to make corned beef nacho bites you will need:
- 2 large potatoes, cut into half-a-centimetre slices
- 250g lean corned beef, diced (3½ syns)
- 160g reduced-fat cheddar, grated (4x HeA)
- handful sliced jalapeños
- 4 tbsp reduced-fat soured cream (4 syns)
- half an onion, diced
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
for the salsa
- 1 tomato, chopped
- half an onion, diced
- 2 tbsp chopped coriander
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
Or just buy salsa and live like a queen!
to make corned beef nacho bites you should:
- preheat the oven to 220°c
- place the potato slices onto a lined baking sheet and spray with a bit of oil (don’t use Frylight – use this instead and get a proper mist!) and sprinkle over the salt and pepper
- bake the potatoes for about 20 minutes, then flip over and bake for another 15-20 minutes (keep an eye on them!)
- meanwhile, mix the salsa ingredients together and set aside
- when finished cooking, remove from the oven and place a little pile of grated cheese on top of each potato slice, followed by some corned beef cubes
- whack under a hot grill until the cheese has just melted
- add a dollop of sour cream and salsa, then chuck on the jalapeños and onion
