These are really simple to make and I always make them when I am making my chili beef recipe. It is just beef chili, cheese and nachos. You can add jalapeños for a hotter dish.

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry chopped onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add minced beef and cook until browned.
  3. Stir in chili powder and tomato puree and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add chopped tomatoes, drained kidney beans and beef stock. (You can put in salt and pepper at this point but I don't use them because I think that there is plenty of flavouring in the stock cube).
  4. Simmer gently for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. Put about 1/4 of the chili into a food blender and Slightly liquidize the chili.
  6. Put half of the tortilla chips into a baking dish then put half of the liquidized chili mixture over the top then sprinkle over half of the cheese.
  7. Put another layer of tortilla chips followed by the chili beef then the cheese.
  8. Sprinkle with chopped jalapeños.
  9. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes.
  10. Serve with soured cream and salsa.
  11. Enjoy.
