What do you call cheese that isn’t yours? It’s nacho cheese! Luckily for you, we don’t just have cheesy words, we also have cheesy nachos (and they’re all yours). This saucy topping includes two spice blends - our Mexican Fiesta brings the heat and flavour, while dried red capsicum flakes add a very mild sweetness to the dish. The combination on this tasty meal is no joke!

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Slice each mini flour tortilla into 8 wedges. Finely chop the tomato and cucumber. Cut the lime into wedges. Dice the avocado. TIP: Cut the avocado still in the skin, then scoop it out with a spoon.

While the tortillas are baking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 3-4 minutes or until browned. Add the Mexican Fiesta spice blend and red capsicum flakes and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. SPICY: You may find the spice blend hot! Feel free to add less, depending on your taste.

Add the tomato paste and the water to the frying pan with the beef and stir to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. TIP: Don't cook the mince for too long, as you want the nachos to be nice and saucy!
