Serves 4 with modest appetite - double up for gannets like me!
500g of good quality mince (or acceptable vegetarian substitute)
1 onion (chopped)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of red kidney beans
200g of tomato puree
1 chili mix (Sharwoods is my favourite)
Big bag of tortilla chips
Decent cheese (I go for Cheddar at the "old socks" end of the spectrum)
Brown the mince and onions together in a large pan. Throw in the tomatoes, puree, beans and chili mix. You might throw in a splash of red wine here too if there's some lying around. Simmer for 30 mins. Transfer to an oven dish. Empty the packet of tortillas on the top and grate cheese over the top. Put in a hot oven for 15 mins or under the grill for5 mins. Serve garlic bread, fresh salad, guacamole and some salsa. Red wine goes well with it. Beaking bread together beforehand provides the perfect setting and a slightly used bottle of red wine that needs finishing!
