The whole family is guaranteed to love this seriously cheesy Cheeseburger Nachos mash-up! Perfect as a part of a bigger meal or as a shareable snack, you won’t believe they’re so low in calories.

We’ve kept things simple by using beef, cheese and some shredded lettuce, but there’s no reason you can’t add in some extra toppings inspired by your favourite burger order. Grate some more cheese on top for added gooeyness, or scatter a few crunchy pieces of smoky bacon on top. 

This recipe includes a tasty home-made burger sauce, but there’s no reason you can’t add a sauce of your own too. We like to add a cheeky dash of BBQ sauce – you can really make them your own! Just be sure to adjust the calories to account for any additional ingredients.
