Cheesy Nachos

There was a night, we went out for dinner, as nothing was in fridge and I was not so well to cook. Afiq insisted on having steaks for dinner. (rabak poket Daddy kalau asyik nak makan cam tu sayang oii)

So, we went to this famous master chef restaurant - Chef Zubir at Wangsa Melawati. Order la few things - lamb, burger and nacho's for appetizer. Nacho's dia adalah sangat sedap, walaupun simple. Tapi makan tak puas sebab portion kecik and share anak beranak.

So I decided to give a try. Main hentam jek, based on taste bud memory. So here it goes, nacho's my version.

1 paket nachos (besar punya - I used mission wrap, flavour butter and garlic.. I think BBQ flavour would be nice too)
Chopped onion
Minced meat
Pasta sauce (In my case, I used sos baked pasta yang tak habis)
Grated mozarella and cheese
Chopped coriander leaves
Chopped red capsicum

1. Brown the meat, capsicum and onion in olive oil.
2. Add the pasta sauce. Mix well and set aside.
3. Arrange the nachos in a microwavable container.
4. Distribute the cooked meat evenly.
5. Sprinkle with cheese & chopped coriander leaves.
6. Heat in microwave on high for 2-3 mins or until cheese melt.
7. Serve immediately.

Would be nicer (I think) if you serve it with chopped tomato + green chillies (or jalapeno).

Rosemary Grilled Chicken

Menu tatkala tidak mampu berlama-lama di dapur kerana kekangan masa. Suka cara masak macam gini!

1 whole chicken
Dried rosemary herb
Olive oil

1. Potong carrot, capsicum, mushroom & potato (i leave the skin on utk potato). Jangan potong nipis sangat. Biar gabak-gabak. :D
2. Marinade chicken with dried rosemary herb, lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil
3. Susun semua dalam tray yang dah dilapik dengan baking paper
4. Grill dalam pre-heated oven for 60mins. (Kalau ayam kecik, i think 45-50 mins is enough. kalau lama sangat nanti kering)
