Snacking Capsicum Nachos

Cooking Time:
20 mins


1 tbs chilli powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

½ tsp oregano

¼ tsp red chilli flakes (more if you like it hotter)

500g ground beef

2 punnets of Sweet Cuties snacking capsicums, halved and seeded

1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

½ cup chopped truss tomatoes

Other toppings as desired (sour cream, olives, chopped jalapeño, avocado, etc.)


Step 1

In a small bowl, combine chilly powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, oregano and red chilly flakes.

Step 2

In a large fry pan over medium heat, brown ground beef until just cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes, breaking up any clumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Add spice mixture and sauté until well combined. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 200°C and line a large baking try with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Arrange Sweet Cuties snacking capsicums in a single layer, cut-side up but very close together.

Step 4

Sprinkle with ground beef mixture and shredded cheese (make sure every capsicum gets a little meat and cheese!).

Step 5

Bake 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese is melty.

Step 6

Remove from oven and top with chopped tomatoes and any other desired toppings. Serve immediately.
