Ingredients

Nachos

  • 500 g beef mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • 400 g canned chopped tomatoes
  • 400 g canned red kidney beans
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 red capsicum, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 3-4 wholemeal wraps

Salsa

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cucumber, deseedand diced
  • Small handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime

To serve

  • Sour cream
  • Fresh coriander

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Fry the mince in two batches to brown, drain off the fat and set the mince aside in a bowl.
  3. Wipe the pan clean, reduce the heat to medium and add a dash of oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring for 5 minutes until soft.
  4. Add the drained mince back to the pan along with the spices, tomatoes, beans, stock, capsicum and sugar.
  5. Simmer until reduced to a thick sauce (around 20-30 minutes). Taste and season as required.
  6. Brush the wraps lightly with oil, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and place on oven trays.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until crisp, turning over once. Break them into big chips.
  8. To make salsa, combine the ingredients gently in a bowl just before serving and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Place chips onto plates and top with the mince. Add a spoonful of salsa, a dollop of sour cream and fresh coriander.

My family love this recipe. It is always a hit! I drop my son Max off to football and can make this recipe and have the kitchen clean by the time I pick him up. A hump day favourite
