Beef Nachos

Not only are nachos delicious, but they make a great quick and easy lunch or dinner. The key to a good nacho recipe is a great chili, and here is mine. I hope you will like it as much as I do! There is also a whole heap of different ways to use up the left overs too!

Beef Nachos

Serves 4

500 g beef mince
1 onion, finely diced
400 g can of tomatoes
400 g can red kidney beans, drained.
3 Tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 bag corn chips
8 Tbsp light sour cream
1/2 Cup grated cheese
2 Spring onions (scallions), chopped.

1. Heat a dash of oil in a large fry pan (medium heat). Add the beef and onion and fry until the mince is browned. Add the tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato paste, and the spices and stir well to combine.

2. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the beef is cooked and the sauce is nice and thick.

3. Serve over corn chips, topped with grated cheese, sour cream, and spring onion.
