Chakalaka nachos

This quick and easy light meal requires only five ingredients – it makes a delicious starter at a braai while you wait for the coals to be just right.

Serves 4 as a light meal

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5–10 minutes

  • about 500 ml shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 tin (400 g) mild chakalaka
  • 250 g nacho chips
  • about 250 ml grated mozzarella
  • guacamole to serve
