Recipe by MellowMel
I love this recipe so much I lost the cookbook and rebought it just for this. The cumin seeds and kumara really are a fantastic addition to a nachos. You could probably cut back a bit on the cheese for a lower-fat version. For a non-vegetarian version, add 1 cup chopped cooked chicken. I can't thank Womens Weekly enough for their recipes.
