I have been seeing lots of pictures of this ‘nacho feast’ all over the internet. There is something comforting about chips with cheese, and if we can have chilli cheese fries why not nacho cheese fries? This is super easy, tasty and to me is one of my all new comfort foods and pairs perfectly with my super quick salsa which I will upload shortly after this recipe!
There are two ways you can make this, you can take the potato and do it as a jacket potato, lay on half the cheese, the mince, then the rest of the cheese or you can do it the way I’m going to explain to you.
1 baking potato (or a potato about the size of your fist)
100g lamb mince (if you can’t find the 10% fat which is the lowest at half a syn per 100g this would be 1.5 syns, if you want to save your syns you can always use the lowest fat beef mince)
25g of 50% reduced fat cheese (i use Morrisons for 3.5 syns or as part of HEA)
1 onion (finely diced)
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 large garlic clove grated
1/2 tsp each of cumin and smoked paprika
generous pinch salt and pepper
1 large tomato (small dice)
small handful coriander. (can omit if you don’t like it!)
- Preheat your oven to 200oC.
- Slice the potato into 2 cum slices and lay on a foiled tray or chip tray.
- Spray with low cal cooking spray and a sprinkle of salt and bake until golden brown (should take 20 ish minutes)
- While the potato slices are in the oven, fry off the lamb mince until starting to brown and add 3/4 of the onion.
- When the onion is soft add the garlic, cumin and paprika and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the tomato puree and a splash of water and cook for a few minutes.
- layer half the potato on a plate with half the cheese, then the mince, the rest of the potato and cheese and place in the oven til the cheese melts.
- Sprinkle over the diced tomato, coriander and rest of the onion and serve.
So simple, done in 20 minutes and super tasty, I love mine with a side salad and some of my salsa (which will be the next recipe I post) If you are making for more than one person I suggest using the jacket potato rather than the slices, you could always make chips in the actifryer.
