Method Prep:15min › Cook:35min › Ready in:50min
Preheat an oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and stir in the minced beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess fat. Stir in the tinned chilli and mix thoroughly. Spread the chilli mixture into a 23x33cm or similar sized baking tin, then top with a single layer of hash browns.
Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and hash browns are crisp, 18 to 22 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a kitchen towel-lined plate. Crumble bacon and set aside.
Melt the processed cheese in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Pour melted cheese over the potato rounds and top with bacon and chopped spring onions.
