Tortilla pie

Here’s an easy recipe. It’s a bit like a cottage pie. You still have the beef mince and vegetables but instead of mashed potato use nachos and cheese.


Serves 2

  • Oil
  • 250g beef mince
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 celery stick, diced
  • 1 chilli, sliced
  • 1 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 200g red kidney beans
  • 300ml Beef stock
  • Thyme, chopped
  • Seasoning
  • Tortilla chips and grated cheese to cover

Preheat the oven to 180C. Put a tablespoon of oil in a saucepan and brown the mince. Remove and keep to one side. Add the onion, carrot, celery, chilli and garlic and fry for 10 minutes until soft. Then add the mince along with the red kidney beans, beef stock and thyme. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.

Put the mixture in a baking dish and then cover with tortilla chips and scatter over the grated cheese. Cook for 20 minutes and the make sure the cheese is all melted.
