250 gms ground beef
400gms refried red kidney beans
272ml tomato ketchup
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp homemade taco seasoning
1 cup shredded Everyday cheese
200g tortilla chips
Optional: sour cream, salsa, sliced scallions for serving
Heat oven to 180 degrees Celcius
Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook the ground beef, stirring and breaking up until it is no longer pink. Add the refried beans, tomato ketchup, chopped bell pepper and onion, and the taco seasoning mix to the pot and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes.
While the beef mixture is simmering, arrange the tortilla chips in a shallow casserole dish.
Spoon the hot mixture over the chips.
Sprinkle the shredded Everyday cheese on top and transfer to the preheated oven.
Bake the nachos for 20 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is lightly browned.
Serve the nachos hot from the oven along with sour cream and other condiments, as desired.
