Meaty nachos w/ guacamole

Ingredients
500 g lean beef mince
1 small onion, finely chopped
2tbsp cider vinegar
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp tomato puree
1 small  can refried beans
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Squirt Ketchup
1 packet tortilla chips/nachos
Grated cheddar
Sour cream (optional)

For the guacamole:
1–3 fresh chillies, depending on heat, and your taste, finely chopped
2 spring onions, finely sliced
Handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
3 ripe avocados
1 ripe medium tomato, finely diced
Juice of 1 lime
Salt to taste

Method
Put a the onion and garlic into a pan on a medium heat and fry until soft.  Then add the mince, increase the heat a little and cook until the meat is well browned, maybe even a little crunchy.  Then add the vinegar, tomatoes, tomato puree, chilli sauce and Worcestershire sauce, dried spices and season well.  Add the refried beans and the water and bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 mins.  Keep checking it and give it a stir now and then, also taste it and add more seasoning/spices according to how you like it.

Make the guacamole by scooping out the avocado and chopping it up into bite sized chunks.  Put everything into a bowl and mix well with a fork, squashing up the avocados you go.  You don’t want a total paste, so some larger chunks of avocado are fine to leave if you like it that way. It’s up to you.   Taste and adjust seasoning, and you might need to add a little more lime juice to give it a good bite.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 C/gas 4

Finally spread your tortilla chips onto an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the grated cheese on top, then put into the over for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling and some of the chips are toasted.  Take out and spoon over your mince mixture and then add dollops of guacamole and if using, sour cream(you can also serve the guacamole and sour cream on the side in a little bowls if you prefer).  Serve immediately.
