Description

These are the most delicious nachos you will ever eat! Sure regular nachos are good but these are for elite snack times only. They make use of our beautiful confit duck, using the skin to make crackling and layering up the meat with an incredible, rich cheese sauce flavoured with truffle dust.

  1. Separate the duck skin from the duck legs and cut into thin strips. Shred the duck meat and set aside.
  2. Place the chopped duck skin in a saucepan with 50ml water and set over low heat. Cook for around 45 minutes, until duck fat is rendered and skin is dark brown.
  3. Strain the duck crackling through a sieve, reserving the duck fat for cooking another time (store it in the fridge ready to make roast potatoes!). Leave to cool.
  4. Combine the onion, tomatoes, lime juice and coriander leaves. Season with salt and set aside.
  5. Make the cheese sauce by placing the milk into a saucepan, to warm through fairly gently - don’t let it boil.
  6. In a separate saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour, whisking to combine and make a roux. Continue to cook for a few minutes, whisking all the time to stop it from burning.
  7. Gradually add the warm milk a little at a time, whisking to make sure it’s all incorporated before adding the next. Once all the milk is added, reduce the heat to low.
  8. Add the cheeses and allow them to melt, whisking all the time. Add the truffle dust (a little at a time - it's strong!) and season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
  9. Heat a frying pan and add the duck meat. Cook over low heat until the duck is hot and crispy in places. Add a very small splash of water if it looks like it is sticking.
  10. Arrange the tortilla chips on a serving platter, layered with the confit duck, cheese sauce (briefly reheat if necessary), salsa and green chilli. Top with the duck crackling and serve immediately!
