This is the recipe for the mince component for nachos. This would work for tacos, Chimichangas or the Tortilla Pie I posted the other day.

This is a budget friendly meal as it only uses 250g of mince and feeds a family of four to eight. You bulk this meal out with lots of veggies and red lentils. If you want a bigger quantity just add more veggies or lentils.
