You know those nights when you crave something naughty but know you should have something nice? I have them all too often and as a result  I have out a healthy spin on some not so healthy dishes. Perhaps not the best recipes to follow if you want to look like Kate Moss but you will definitely get your daily intake of veggies and won’t go to bed hungry.  Here are so is how to make my Chilli Con Carne Nachos:

What you need:

  • 0.5kg mince
  • Can of kidney beans
  • Can of crushed tomatoes
  • 6 x small hot chillies
  • Can of corn kernels
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 tomatoes
  • Bunch of lettuce
  • Natural yoghurt
  • Guacamole (see my recipe)
  • 2 gloves of garlic
  • Taco seasoning
  • Grated cheese

What you need to do:

  • Soften the onion and garlic in a pan with some olive oil until soft
  • Add the mince, taco seasoning, chillies and diced carrot then add the can of tomatoes
  • Bring the mixture to the boil, adding water if needed then leave the simmer for about 20 minutes so all the flavours come together
  • About 3 minutes before serving, stir through the can of corn
  • Serve the mixture into the bowls and top with some grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, bunch of lettuce, guacamole, yoghurt and a handful of corn chips to scope up the goodness!
