400g can diced tomatoes

400g red kidney beans drained and rinsed

2 cloves garlic chopped

2 red chillies chopped

1 Tbspn olive oil

1 large bag of plain corn chips

Sour cream to serve


Heat oil in a large frying pan and sauté garlic and chillies until soft.

Add mince and brown over high heat stirring constantly.

Add diced tomatoes and red kidney beans, stir well then cover and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes or until mince is cooked, stirring occasionally.

Place desired amount of corn chips in camp oven, on alfoil or baking paper to avoid burning if possible. Add sufficient beef mixture in centre, top with grated cheese and heat over hot coals until cheese has melted.
