A fully loaded nacho is a wonderful thing. Crisp chips, flavour packed beef and stretchy cheese. Oh so good. But when you reach the bottom and you pick a chip with no cheese??? That is the worst! So I have a few simple steps to ensure you get the perfect combination of meat to cheese to chip!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2  cups taco meat (recipe here)
  • 12 oz tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (see notes)
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • small handful chopped fresh coriander/cilantro leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200ºC/400ºF.
  • Place the taco meat in the microwave and heat for 2-3 minutes until warmed through.
  • Line a baking sheet with non-stick cooking paper (or lightly grease)
  • Lay out one third of the tortilla chips in a single layer onto the baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle over about a third of the cheese.
  • Top with a third of the meat.
  • Repeat: 1/3 chips, 1/3 cheese, 1/3 taco meat.
  • For the final layer, first the remaining chips, add the final third of meat to this and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Place into oven and bake for about 6 minutes until the cheese has melted but the chips aren't burnt!
  • Add a good dollop of sour cream to the top and then sprinkle over the coriander.

Notes

Use a mixture of your favourite cheese. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, Colby and Tasty (An Australia cheddar style cheese) all work well.
