Nachos are ideal when you're in a hurry on a busy week night, or if you need a snack while watching the rugby. Just one big platter everyone can share. It’s easy to add more tortilla chips or to mix things up with different cheeses.

  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 125g sour cream

  1. Heat the oven to 180C
  2. Put the mince in a pot on high heat.
  3. Cook until brown then add 1/2 of the diced onion.
  4. Add the stock and turn the heat down.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes until most of the liquid has gone.
  6. Mix through the chilli beans and season.
  7. Spread the tortilla chips over the base of a tray or oven dish.
  8. Spread  the mince in middle leaving the edges clear and sprinkle with grated cheese.

  • Add jalapenos for more heat in your nachos.
  • Very quickly blanch some spinach. Drain, chop and add to the tomatoes along with some olives.
  • Substitute lemons for limes
