Easy Beef Nachos

INGREDIENTS

- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 packet of original corn chips
- 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
- Sour cream &/or smashed Avocado for additional toppings


METHOD

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

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.

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.
