Weekend Food... Macho Nacho's...

Hubby & I have been watching what we eat over the past few weeks.. We have cut back on a lot that is bad for us & formed many new habits that are good for us; such as eating breakky daily & not eating dessert throughout the week.

We've also decided fast food/take-away will now be foods reserved for birthdays/special occasions (rather than foods that were eaten once/twice weekly). I must admit as well as losing at least 3kg, I'm feeling much healthier/better for the changes already. My clothes are fitting differently & I have far more energy.

On the weekends, however, we allow ourselves 1 or 2 food luxuries for 'behaving' throughout the week & this weekend Hubby had a craving for nacho's. Quite a large craving so it would seem, lol.

So last night he cooked up these yummy nacho's..

What you will need;
- Packet of Feta, Garlic & Poppyseed corn chips from Aldi (they make all the difference!)
- Sliced mushrooms, diced onion & sliced black olives.
- 500g extra lean minced beef.
- 1 jar of tomato based pasta sauce (we used a chilli infused one as no kiddies were eating them)
- 1 large can of 5 bean mix
- Light sour cream to garnish

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan & preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, in your frying pan brown the mince and onion - once brown add the sliced mushrooms, olives & tomato based sauce.. Continue to cook until ready.

Arrange your corn chips into a baking dish (rectangular) and once the mince mixture is cooked, pour it over the top of the nacho's, sprinkle with light low-fat grated cheese and pop it into the oven until the cheese is nicely melted.

Once cooked, arrange on plates or serve from the dish. Scoop sour cream on top to suit :-)


I had quite the heartburn and I certainly didn't have any Malteaser's with my movie but it was worth it for being good all week..

What's the yummiest food you love but dread to eat?
