Foodie Friday - Chilli Nachos

Foodie Friday is something I thought I would do every week (surprisingly on a Friday!) to share with you a new recipe I have tried, or an old favourite.

This week, is a recipe that I did actually a couple of weeks ago now but it was so yummy that I decided it had to be my first to share!

Chilli Nachos


1 bag of Tortilla Chips
250g Minced Beef
1 diced onion
1 chilli sachet (of your preferred heat!)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of red kidney beans
A handful (or more) of your choice of cheese


Add the onion to a hot pan with some oil and fry for about five minutes until softened. Add the minced beef and brown. Once cooked, add the chilli sachet and make sure all of the mince is coated. Now add the chopped tomatoes and kidney beans and stir it all together. Simmer for approximately 15 minutes.

Pop your grill on high.

Get a baking tray and empty your bag of tortilla chips onto it- we used the 'cool' variety, but any you like will be fine. Now throw on your chilli mix and make sure all of the chips are covered. Sprinkle some of your cheese all over and put it under the grill for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown...mmmm.

Serve straight away with some sour cream (for me) or extra hot jalapenos (for the husband).

Amazing with some salad as a main meal, or just as it is for a great sharing starter.
