These Chilli Beef Nachos are a perfect zingy and fresh sharing platter.
To make the tortilla chips, cut the lime in half and rub both sides of each tortilla with the cut side of the lime. Cut the tortillas into quarters. Heat a small glug of oil in a large pan over a medium high heat. In batches, fry the tortillas on both sides for a couple of minutes until brown. Between batches, add a little more oil if needed. Leave to one side
In a bowl, mix together the herbs and spices for the meat. Put the beef on to a baking tray lined with foil and separate the strands with your fingers. Tip over the spice mix and use your hands to work the spices through so that the minced beef is thoroughly coated. Pop in the oven for 20mins, stirring occasionally. Put one one side when cooked.
