Impromptu Nachos

Don't you just love it when you can pull something great together from remains in the fridge and some pantry items? I didn't think this one would be worth noting but once we had a bite, I had to bring out my camera hahaha! The rocket was a really good accompaniment and not something I would ever have thought to serve with nachos. I'm now converted.

Here is the recipe for my very unconventional, non traditional nachos.

400g mince meat
1 onion (diced finely)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
4 tablespoon Ardmona Pizza Sauce (or you can just use tomato paste but I was trying to use up my bottle in the fridge)
1 can 4 bean mix
Salt & Pepper
1 packet of corn chips (I used Nacho Cheese Doritos)
2 tomatoes (diced)
50-80g rocket
1/2 carton sour cream (150ml roughly)
100-150g chedder cheese (grated)

1. Cook the onion in a hot pan for about a minute, then add the minced garlic. Cook for a further 2mins then add the meat.
2. Meanwhile, spread the chips on a baking tray and place in a heated oven for around 5mins to crisp it up.
3. Once the meat has browned, add the tomato paste and stir it through. Then add the can of beans and salt and pepper, cook for another 2-3mins.
4. Take the chips out and pour the mince mixture on top. Then layer it with the diced tomatoes and the cheese on top. Pop the whole tray in the oven for another 5-8mins or until the cheese has melted and has got a bit of colour to it.
5. Take it out of the oven and dollop sour cream all over and lastly place the rocket on top.

It's hard to go wrong with cheese and sour cream!

It was a big tray for 2!

Time to dig in...

Yeah baby!

Gotta love that stretchy oozy cheese!

The carnage...
At least we ate all our greens ;)

  1. The strings of cheese look soo tasty. They definitely are the difference between a good and bad nachos.
