I love Mexican food but just the thought of all that sour cream, flour tortillas, cheese etc can be enough to churn the stomach of anyone having to follow a gluten and dairy free diet.

I’ve pulled together a quick recipe that is a fresh alternative take on nachos.


  • 150g gluten and dairy free tortilla chips or make your own
  • 2 chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 2 teaspoons dairy free natural yoghurt or mayonnaise
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper, for seasoning
