Jar Nachos

Jar Nachos
  • Prep: 10
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4


  • 4 wholemeal pita bread
  • 1 olive or canola oil spray
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup Mexican salsa, (see our recipe)
  • 4 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup reduced-fat cheese, grated
  • 1 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 cups sweet corn kernels (or 1 corn cob, cooked)


Preheat oven to 200°C. Spray 1 side of each pita pocket with oil and sprinkle with paprika. Cut each pocket into 8 triangles. Place, in a single layer, on a large baking tray. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crisp. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.   

Layer the ingredients evenly between containers, finishing with the coriander and pita crisps. 

For school, pack salad in a clear plastic container with pita chips packed separately to keep them crisp. 




 Add our guacamole (see recipe) for an extra special treat.
