Loaded Beef Nachos: Ingredients

  • Ground beef
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Chilli powder
  • Cream cheese
  • Kidney beans
  • Onions
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Corn chips (to serve)

Heat up a large frying pan and bring it to a medium heat. Add in the onions and cook them off slowly, moving them around constantly for 2-3 minutes until soft.

Add in the chilli powder and cook it out for 60 seconds. You will want to use a wooden spoon or spatula to ensure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

Once the meat has browned off for several minutes and is taking on some good colour, add in the chopped tomatoes. You can turn the heat down to a low to medium heat at this stage.

Cook the meat and sauce out for a good 12-15 minutes until it starts to thicken up, before adding the kidney beans (strained). Season the meat with salt and pepper and ensure you are happy with the taste and consistency.

Lay the corn chips out on an oven proof dish and spoon the meat over the top.
