Top Tips

* Nacho sauce is suitable for creating a Taco or Quesadilla filling too.

* Mexican sauce is also slow cooker friendly. Cook on a low heat for 4 hours, or in an oven-proof dish at 160°C for 1½ - 2 hours, adding the beans ½ an hour before the end of cooking.

* Replace beef mince with chicken or lamb.

* To make a vegetarian option replace the meat with an extra can of kidney beans or 300g diced vegetables.

Hi Peg,

Thanks for your query. This recipe uses a mild chilli bean option - Wattie's mild Chilli Beans, alternatively you can try this with baked beans :)

Hope this helps!

Was lucky enough to receive a tin of the chilli beans to create this recipe in a promotion Watties was doing. These were a fab easy dinner to whip up and we're throughly enjoyed. I added some crushed chilli to give it a kick as I like spicy nachos and this was a definite winner.

Pretty good and easy meal. I have cooked it twice now. The first time around I couldnt find chili beans and I used Mexican style red kidney beans. Worked really well.
