Serves: 12 

  • 450g beef mince
  • 1 (28g) sachet taco seasoning, such as Santa Maria
  • 180ml water
  • 1 large packet tortilla chips
  • 110g grated mature Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tin refried beans
  • 250g salsa

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Cook and stir mince in a frying pan over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain any excess grease. Stir in taco seasoning and water and simmer until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Set the oven rack about 15cm from the heat source and preheat the grill. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
  3. Spread tortilla chips on the prepared baking tray; top with cheese and dot with refried beans and mince mixture.
  4. Grill in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, watching carefully to prevent burning, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Top nachos with salsa, soured cream, black olives, spring onions and jalapenos.


If you don't have pre-mixed taco seasoning, you can make your own by adding 1 teaspoon chilli powder (more or less to taste); 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules; 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano; 1/4 teaspoon paprika; 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin; and salt to taste. Adding a pinch or two of cornflour will help to thicken the mixture slightly, but is optional.
