Royce and I both love nachos, so I tend to add a few extra salad ingredients to justify having them more frequently! I’ve called this version Greek-style as they use lamb mince, feta and olives, with a yoghurt sour cream sauce.

Instructions

  1. MAKE MINCE MIXTURE

Sprinkle over stock cube, oregano, cumin, paprika and garlic powder. Cook, stirring, for one minute. Stir in tomato paste, then capsicum, canned tomatoes and chilli beans. Leave to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce has reduced significantly.

  3. Shred lettuce. Dice tomatoes, red onion and feta. Slice olives.

Recipe Notes

WINE MATCH: A Syrah or a beer - try a lager.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Use a gluten-free beef stock cube and gluten-free corn chips.
INGREDIENT SWAPS: If you can’t find the flavoured canned tomatoes, you can use plain crushed tomatoes instead. These tend to taste a little more acidic so you may find you need to add a teaspoon of sugar. You can use black beans or kidney beans in place of the chilli beans.
INGREDIENT QUANTITIES: Choose a quantity of corn chips that best suits the appetites in your household! If you love olives you may want to use extra.
STORING AND REHEATING: Store mince mixture separately to the other ingredients. Reheat in the microwave, then assemble with the other ingredients to serve.
