    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
    • 225ml soured cream
    • 1 (240g) jar pitted black olives, drained and chopped
    • 4 spring onions, chopped
    • 1/2 (215g) jar jalapenos, drained and chopped

    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.

    This is almost the exact recipe that I use for nachos. Helpful hint...mix the beans with the seasoned beef. Beans alone are sometimes difficult to spread.  -  04 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I like to make this using ground turkey or ground chicken and I like to use either tomato juice or tomato sauce instead of water when I combine the taco seasoning with the browned ground meat. I use homemade taco seasoning, homemade refried beans, homemade salsa in this recipe--that really takes it to a whole other level. My boys absolutely love this. It's great for those weekends when nothing in the cupboard sounds good for lunch/dinner and you just want something fun. GREAT "dad's cooking!" meal.  -  27 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. The only change I made was add the beans to the meat mixture. Careful with the broiling time, mine took only 3 minutes. For toppings I used (after it came out of the oven): green chili's, black olives, green onion, sour cream and salsa. I will never make nachos in the microwave again, oven only. Absolutely Delicious.  -  05 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
