Naughty and Nice Nachos

It was Sunday, I needed a naughty food fix... I want nachos I shouted out! Then I thought about it, I didn't want that sloppy guacamole or chemically tasting salsa. So, I decided to make my own :)
I made my own guacamole and salsa so quick too, took less than 10 minutes! No, its not as quick as spooning it out of a jar, but tastes so so much fresher, crisper and I guess is 'technically healthy' - bar the cheese, nachos and sour cream ha ha!
