My Ultimate Chilli Cheese Nachos Recipe

OMG these nachos! I made them for the first time at the end of July and they were absolutely delicious! I love chilli nachos and it's one of my favourite things to have at Chiquitos, though I've always wanted to attempt my own. I'm all about the mexican food and after basically rotating each weekend fajitas/tacos etc. I decided to just go for it and try and make my own chilli cheese nachos. I am so glad I did! I used my usual chilli recipe, bought some dips and just basically piled it all into a dish! I wanted to do a full recipe on this because it's one everyone needs to try! We've even had it with quorn mince aswell and that was just as good.
Ingredients: (2 people)
250g beef mince (quorn could be used instead)
1 red onion
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
400ml of beef stock
1 tin of kidney beans, drained
1 tsp of - garlic powder, chipotle chilli flakes, chilli powder, cumin, mixed herbs
A little bit of salt and pepper
Nachos - we used a bag of Asda Smartprice which are about 45p and so tasty
As much cheese as you want

1. To make your chilli, first cook the mince in a pan with frylight or a little oil. Then add in 1 diced red onion and leave to soften
2. When the mince is cooked and onion has started to soften, add in 1 tin of chopped tomatoes and 1 tin of kidney beans, stir then prepare your beef stock. I usually use 1 beef stock cube and 1 tsp of bisto with about 400ml of boiling water
3. Add the beef stock to the mix and stir well, then add in all your seasonings. I use at least 1 tsp of garlic powder, chipotle chilli flakes, chilli powder, cumin and mixed herbs with a little bit of salt and pepper. You can add as much chilli powder as you like though, depends how hot and spicy you prefer! I've just put 1 tsp as a guide as that shouldn't be too bad
4. Now leave to simmer for around half an hour, stirring occassionally 
5. When the chilli is starting to thicken, you can then prepare your nachos. I usually do a layer of nachos in a dish, top with some grated cheese and bake in the oven til melted. I then repeat the process and then set aside
6. When you have done a few layers of cheesy nachos, you can now top them with chilli. I piled the chilli on top, added a little bit more cheese then put in the oven for 5 minutes just so the cheese on top melted
7. When the cheese has melted, either transfer to a bowl or place the dish on the table. We put some coasters down then put dish on top and that worked fine, be careful as the dish will be extremely hot
8. You can now add all your toppings! I got a mixed selection dip from Asda which had guacamole, salsa, a cheesy sauce and sour cream and chive. We put spoonfuls of guacamole and salsa all over and we also had some normal sour cream which we added too. We didn't really use the cheese dip and the sour cream and chive, but they were good for just dipping extra nachos into!
I'm just so pleased with how it turned out and had to blog about it. I know this is a recipe I'll be coming back to over and over again, it's the perfect Saturday night meal to have while watching a film or a good boxset!

I also think this would be a fab meal to make if you had people over, I promise you it will go down a treat!
Let me know if you decide to give this recipe a go, it's incredible.
