What's Your Quick & Healthy Snack?

The capital is witnessing a lovely weather today. Monsoon seems to be at it's peak, and so is the week. While food features on AWSW are usually flashed on weekends, but this beautiful weather is asking for some interesting and yum recipes that are quick and healthy!
So, here we are with our recent experiential. And, this is all about Cornitos Nachos Blogger's Contest where we participated, and created this tasty and healthy recipe, names AWSW Nachos...

A Traditional Mexican Style AWSW Nachos, Paired with Beer!!

Dish on its Way
So, what was this event all about? Cornitos, as we all know is a brand that is all about healthy snacks, which are corn based. From Nachos, Tornitos, to some lip-smacking salsas, and sauces they have an array of healthy options, when it comes to traditional Mexican quick snacks. They, in association with Electrolux organized a Nachos Bloggers Contest, in Gurgaon, at Electrolux's Convention Centre, where each participating F&B blogger was asked to create one innovating recipe, using the Nachos from the brand.
Trust us, it was a fun event, and we too marked our presence there.
Dr. Supriya Himanshu, the Founder & Owner, participated (see pics), and prepared this nice dish, which we named it as AWSW. While the dish was not our innovation, we did some really detailed Google search to find out the right dish that can go well with women, and we came up with this one.
eager to know what exactly AWSW Nachos was all about? Read the recipe below that will give you a fir idea of it's duration, and the super ingredients.

1. Mash all of the guacamole ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. Cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the fridge until needed, 20 minutes approx.
2. Mix all of the salsa ingredients together until well combined. Set aside for 10 minutes.
3. Pre-heat the oven to 220C/430F. Sprinkle the Cornitos Nachos into a large oven-proof dish. Scatter over the sliced jalapeno peppers and grated cheese. Shift it to the oven and cook until the cheese has melted, 4-5 minutes approx. 

Serve in Style 
Add the guacamole, salsa and sour cream on top of the nachos, absolutely casually, and sprinkle over the coriander leaves, for the final touch!

And, if you thought that we were the winner, of course not. We received this 'Token of Appreciation' from Vikram Agarwal, Director, Cornitos, along with the Blogger Trophie (not in pic)!!
It's time for you to try this dish, as we have realized that the brand really has some amazing ready-made salsa's and sauces too. So, if you don't wish those layers of cheese and veggies, all you need to do is open the Nachos pack, and dip it in the salsa, and enjoy your evening!!
