    Default Nachos

    Has anyone got a good recipe? DS has asked if we can have them, but I'm on page 4 of an Internet recipe search and all I'm getting is vegan, turkey, and vego recipes!

    After something fairly simple, not too spicy and yum! Anyone out there got a good recipe??

    When I make them I usually just use regular beef mince and put a taco seasoning (usually get the mission brand) taste is not too spicy at all quite mild add to the mince plus kidney beans (optional)
    I cook the mince first
    Then get corn chips (plain Doritos or your preference) and put them on a baking tray top with the cooked mince, salsa (Doritos brand- mild or hot) and grated cheese
    Put in the oven and cook until cheese has melted then top with sour cream guacamole and any extra toppings you would like

    Fairy simple but find it's quite enjoyable always messy to eat but quick and easy to make

    Pretty much exactly as above, except i make the chilli con carne version, you can get the spice packets in the same area all the taco stuff is. So yummy!

    I do mine with
    500g premium beef mince
    2 medium carrots grated
    1 medium zucchini grated
    1/2 green capsicum finely diced
    Packet of taco seasoning (can easily replace with homemade lower salt version using a spice mix of ground paprika, cumin, coriander, garlic, chilli)
    Brown mince then add grated/diced veg and taco seasoning with 1 cup boiling water and cook down until liquid absorbed about 10 minutes.
    I just use plain corn chips and top with the beef mix, dollops of tomato salsa, grated cheese (can microwave it once assembled if you want melted cheese) then add guacamole on the side.

    This sounds so good, definitely going to try this!

    OP one thing I have tried is swapping out the corn chips for wedges of raw capsicum. My kids love rainbow nachos

    Taco seasoning it is! I didn't even think of that. I think the last time I had nachos was probably 20 years ago . I grabbed doritos, salsa, and sour cream on Friday, but didn't think of seasoning for the mince. I don't have all the spices gingermillie suggested to do from scratch, so will have to grab some of the mix next week and do it then. Thanks all!

    Bit late to the table, but when I make a nachos, I make chicken ones.
    In slow cooker, Chuck in chicken breast, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, tin of cream of chicken condensed soup, 1-2tbs of taco seasoning. Leave it go for 4 hours on low. Chuck in some shredded cheese and leave it for another half hour. Chicken will be shreddable by then. Take it out and plop it on some corn chips.

    I usually serve it like that to the kids, but for hubby and I, I add salsa which is..
    Tomato and cucumber dived, chopped red onion and coriander, with a bit or lime or lemon juice.

    I make chilli con carne for nachos.

    500g beef mince
    Tin of kidney beans
    1 onion
    1 chilli, chopped finely
    A dash of chilli powder
    Teaspoon of garlic
    Teaspoon of paprika
    A dash of sugar
    2 tins crushed tomatoes

    Cook it as you would a pasta sauce. The longer you let it simmer, the better it tastes.

    ETA I usually then just top it with avocado and a diced tomato, red onion & lime juice salsa once it's out of the oven.

    I do this. But I add tomato paste and sometimes some tinned lentils.
