Beef Nachos

Beef Nachos

Beef Nachos is a great last-minute dinner when you have only a few minutes and have run out of energy and inspiration. As long as you have a bag of corn chips and a tin of kidney beans in the cupboard, you’re away!

For best results use Angus premium mince meat. The Nachos mix in this recipe is child friend but feel free to spice it up with some fresh sliced chilli and a good dollop of guacamole.
