One of our favourite family casual meals is a good ol’ nachos. This is really tasty using my taco seasoning and topping the nachos with guacamole, sour cream, cherry tomatoes and refried beans. This makes a very large serve so any cooked mince left over freezes very well.

- 500g beef mince
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 red chilli (optional)
