Mexico meets Italy - A recipe

This blog post is brought to you by:
Do you know what this is:

Shall I tell you?

Its what I termed "Nachos Lasagne"


What you need:
For the mince layer
1kg mince
1 onion
1 carrot
1 large celery stick
Cayenne pepper
3 cloves of garlic
White pepper and salt to taste

For the cheese layer
2 tubs chunky cottage cheese
1 tin mexican style tomatoes
½ small tub plain yoghurt
1½ circles of feta
1-2 tbs milk

For the rest of the layers
1 bag Nachos Grande
½ bag grated cheddar
½ bag grated mozzarella

What to do:

Put the carrot, onion and celery in a food processor so its chopped very small. Fry it off in a little bit of sunflower oil. Add the mince and continue frying till almost cooked. Add garlic, spices and seasoning and cook for a bit longer until mince is fully cooked. Take off the heat.

Mix together all the cheese layer ingredients adding the milk until you get a nice consistency


Start with a layer of cheesyness, followed by nachos and then mince. Top the mince with JalapeƱos and repeat. I managed 2 layers in my baking dish. The last 2 layers must be nachos followed by cheese. Put in a hot oven for about 5 minutes then under the grill till brown and bubbly.



  1. nomnomnom (except with spinach and salsa instead of mince)

  2. hmm I think mushrooms or lentils will actually work better.
