  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Fresh Coriander chopped
  • 750 g SuperValu Fresh Irish Beef Mince
  • 100 g SuperValu Tortilla Chips
  • 3 tbsp Taco Seasoning (see below)

For the taco seasoning

  • 1 tsp Black Pepper ground
  • 2 tbsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin Seeds ground
  • 0.5 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 0.5 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 0.5 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp SuperValu Cornflour
  • 2 tsp SuperValu Smoked Paprika

To serve

  • 1 jar Jalapeno sliced
  • 2 head SuperValu Baby Gem Lettuce shredded
  • 3 - SuperValu Plum Tomatoes diced
  • 4 tbsp SuperValu Sour Cream
  • 100 g Supervalu Guacamole Dip


  1. Combine all the spice mix ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the mix, then transfer the rest to a storage jar to use another time.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan set over a medium heat. Add the beef mince and brown for 5 minutes, then season with salt and pepper. Add the onions, peppers and garlic and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until the vegetables are soft. Add the taco spice mix and stir to coat the meat and vegetables.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.
  4. Add the tomatoes and refried beans (or mashed kidney beans) and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes, until the beef is cooked through and the sauce has reduced slightly.
  5. Layer the tortilla chips in a baking dish and pour the beef mixture over, then sprinkle with the grated Cheddar. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the fresh coriander. Serve immediately with the diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, guacamole, sour cream and jalapeños on the side to let everyone load up their own nachos.
