Nachos

If you haven’t learned how to make your own nachos, this is your moment.
Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
250g/9oz beef mince
1 tsp hot smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chilli powder
½ 400g tin black beans, drained
200g/7oz lightly salted corn tortilla chips
150g/5½oz cheddar, grated
100g/3½oz cherry tomatoes, quartered
salt and freshly ground black pepper
To serve
4 spring onions, finely chopped
coriander (optional)
sliced chillies (optional)
lime wedges
soured cream

Method
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion and cook for 3–5 minutes until soft and translucent.

Increase the heat and add the beef, paprika, cumin and chilli powder. Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beef is browned.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the black beans, stirring gently, until the beans are heated through. Season with salt and pepper.

Line the base of a 1.5 litre/2¾ pint ovenproof dish or baking tray with a single layer of tortilla chips, then top with half of the beef mixture, then half the cheddar and half the cherry tomatoes. Add a second layer of tortilla chips, then top with the remaining beef and cheese. Transfer to the oven and cook for 8–10 mins, until the cheese has melted.

Remove the nachos from the oven and top with the remaining cherry tomatoes, spring onions, coriander and chilli, if using. Serve hot with the soured cream and lime wedges.
