Original southern nachos

Serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes

"This is a pure NZ recipe, but with major influences from many southern US states (Grilled Meat, Chili, Cajun, Guacamole and Cheesy!). It is inexpensive and easy to cook and can be dished up as a main or a party snack. Any mince or stripped meat can be used making it good for your favourite cut."
