Hmm not sure how can call this nachos when there is not corn chip style utensils to eat/scoop it with , this is what the whole idea of nachos is isn’t it?
Next time I make this, I will peel the pumpkin before baking for ease of eating. I served this in a wide pasta bowl and it was awkward to deal with. Worth it though, for the flavours!
I made this a few nights ago. my husband loved it in fact he told me i could make it again. i took Hilary”s advice and peeled the pumpkin. Much easier to eat and done in a wide dish like in the photo. You could probably have piled it onto corn chips. May try that next time.
I compromised on the pumpkin versus corn chip debate by using small wedges of pumpkin (small buttercup with wedges cut in 1/2 crosswise) to make scooping up all the sauce ingredients much easier and finished the dish with some coarsely crushed corn chips.
