Easy Beef Nachos

INGREDIENTS
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
500g beef mince
1 Tbsp Tweed Real Food Fiesta Mexicana
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup water
1 cup grated cheese
Optional: Sliced, fresh chili to serve for some extra heat

METHOD
Preheat oven to 200C.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Cook onion for 2 minutes, or until soft. Add mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until browned.
Stir in Fiesta Mexicana Seasoning, tomato paste and water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes, or until thick.
Arrange corn chips on a heatproof plate and bake for 2-3 minutes. Top with cheese, then mince and sprinkle with more cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, or until hot.
Add sliced chilies.
 
How to avoid soggy Nachos
To avoid a nacho nightmare, I toughen the chips up with a quick pre-bake in a 200° oven, and then sprinkle a protective layer of the grated cheese on them to create a buffer between the chips and the rest of the toppings. The cheese will melt slightly.
No, the chips won’t stay crispy forever, but this will give you a good amount of time before the chips begin to grow soggy.
