Cheesy Beef Nachos


You’ll find many reasons to love these cheesy beef nachos. First of all the cheese is gooey and the meat sauce is flavourful and spicy. The salsa gives it the much-needed freshness and the chimmichuri sauce gives it this great herbiness and tanginess.

We used Makino Nacho Chips (Cheese flavour), which we got from one of our partners ADK General Trading. We love these nacho chips because they are crispy and they are pretty good on their own without being too salty. But we adore them because they are gluten free and has zero trans fat making them a healthier alternative to the other nacho chips out there.

You can use the Gannamart App to get the Makino Nacho Chips or get in touch with ADK General Trading on their Viber hotline 736-3663. Other Makino Nacho Chips flavours include sweet chilli, tomato salsa, roasted masala, jalapeno and peri peri.
