For a taste of Mexico at your family dinner, next party hosting or foodservice you won’t want to miss serving this gluten-free nachos recipe. Even those who don’t have gluten-free food preferences are sure to enjoy this dish just as much!
As winter begins to set in, here is a popular dish that is sure to make you the ultimate host/hostess and warm the stomachs of all that have the pleasure of tasting it.
Gluten-Free Lean & Mean Nachos
Prep Time: 15mins
Baking Time: 40 mins
Serves: 6-8 people
Baking Temperature: 220°C
500g beef mince
1 tin crushed tomatoes
1 green capsicum
2 garlic cloves
30g Italian mixed herbs
1 bottle gluten-free mild taco sauce
1 tin mexi beans
60g gluten-free tomato paste
125g grated cheese
2 packets gluten-free corn tortillas
Oil for frying
Knife Chopping board
- Heat oil in a large frying pan on a high/medium heat. Dice the onion and crush the garlic, lightly cook in a frying pan until slightly brown and fragrant.
- Lower the heat and add the beef for this nachos recipe. Once mince is cooked, add the tomatoes, herbs, diced capsicum, taco sauce, beans, tomato paste and 3/4 cup of water. Cover, bring to the boil and simmer for a further 15 mins.
- While beef is simmering, preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Tear tortillas into pieces, and once mince has about 5 minutes remaining, bake the tortillas on oven trays lined with baking paper until crispy.
- Spoon the meat mixture into individual serving bowls and top with grated cheese. Use tortilla crisps to dip, eat and enjoy.
The great thing about this recipe is it’s totally customisable. If you’d prefer, switch out the beef for chicken mince or shredded chicken to make this a nachos with chicken recipe. Want more heat? Add a spicer taco sauce or a teaspoon of chili powder to give more of a kick to your nachos.
However you customise it, this is surely to be a delicious, healthy and hearty meal that is perfect to warm up during the winter chills for you, your family and any guests you host.
