Oven Temp


1 teaspoon olive oil 
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped 
2 large garlic cloves, crushed 
1 red pepper, cut in half, deseeded and chopped 
1 red chilli, cut in half, deseeded and finely chopped 
300g of Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured lean steak mince
200ml beef stock
1 tablespoon tomato puree 
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper

To serve 
200g bag tortilla chips
150g grated mozzarella
1 avocado, cut in half, stone removed and cut into dice
2 jalapeno peppers, roughly chopped
A handful of chopped fresh parsley
The juice of a lime
Heat the olive oil in a large non stick frying pan and gently fry the chopped onion for a few minutes until it begins to soften and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. Add the crushed garlic, chopped red pepper and chilli to the pan and continue to fry for a minute before adding the steak mince.
Break the meat up with the spoon as it cooks until golden brown. Stir in the beef stock, tomato puree, cayenne and a little salt and pepper and bring to a boil, then reduce the temperature to a low setting and simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened. 

To serve
Arrange tortilla chips onto an oven proof serving dish and top with the meat sauce, then sprinkle with grated cheese. Place into a hot oven for 10 minutes to allow the chips to soften and the cheese to melt. 
Sprinkle with chopped avocado, jalapenos, chopped parsley and a squeeze of lime before serving.
