Nachos with Salad Recipe

Nachos with Salad Recipe

Serve a hot platter of nachos with a lovely big bowl of fresh salad and watch the family come a-runnin’! This meal is always a big hit with my family, and they love serving themselves with all the condiments that go with nachos – guacamole, sour cream and salsa.

You can make your own guacamole and tomato salsa if you like. But I find it time-saving and easier to just swing by the cold foods section of the supermarket and grab a guacamole dip and dig out that unopened sachet of salsa from the last time we had tacos (it always ends up forgotten at our house!).

I like to use the corn chips that are found in the taco section of the supermarket, rather than the Doritos-type ones in the chip section. I find that they are thicker and don’t go as soggy as the chips do.

Nachos with Salad Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4


  • 500gms beef mince
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 packet of tortilla corn chips
  • 1 ½ cups of grated tasty cheese
  • 1 jar of tomato salsa
  • 1 small container of sour cream
  • 1 cup of pre-packaged guacamole dip (optional)
  • Mixed salad leaves
  • Sliced red onion
  • Half a punnet of cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. 1. Prepare taco mince as per directions on the seasoning packet – brown the mince, mix the seasoning with water, stir to combine and simmer.
  2. 2. Preheat oven to 200°C. Arrange tortilla corn chips on an ovenproof platter or lasagne-sized casserole dish. Top with taco mince and 1 cup of the grated tasty cheese. Bake in oven until cheese melts, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. 3. Prepare your salad while the cheese melts by mixing all salad ingredients on a separate platter. Serve salad and nachos with lots of salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
