500g beef mince

435g can refried beans

1/2 cup canned red kidney beans, drained & rinsed

400g can diced tomatoes

2 Tblsp tomato paste

1 tsp chilli powder

3To serve, arrange chips on serving plates, spoon over nachos meat and top with grated cheese (see notes)

4Add a dollop of sour cream and smashed avocado

5— Notes —

6We like to zap the nachos in the microwave for 30-60 seconds per plate to melt the cheese nicely before adding the rest of the toppings, but that’s optional 🙂


8You can replace the 6 spices with a 40g sachet of taco type seasoning if you prefer to make an easier version.

Oh wow! Best Nachos Ever, even got the approval from my 4yo!! (And no argument about dinner))
My husband who loves Nachos (if it’s on a venue menu- he will generally go for that), he loved this!!
I used the taco seasoning packet and added canned lentils and full tin of kidney beans!
Thank you 🙂

I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve never had refried beans but the texture was very pasty like and not pleasant.
Was also way too hot for the two young ones
A lot of different spices for not a great result.
