Ground Pork Nachos loaded with mozzarella cheese, olives, red peppers and spring onions, a fantastic party food recipe to feed a crowd. These nachos are not only insanely delicious, but healthy too. Bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes so that the cheese can melt nicely, and you get the best Game Day food. Great for any other celebration too! The ground pork is cooked with garlic and tomatoes, and it goes perfectly well with the tortilla chips.

Ingredients
  • 1 bag tortilla chips (I used Old Paso, 185 g, 6 oz)
  • 250 g ground pork 1/2 lb
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced pitted black olives
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • a handful of spring onions
  • chilli peppers (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Heat up the oil in a pan, add the ground pork and use a wooden spoon or spatula to break it up into small pieces until no longer pink.

  2. Continue to cook it until slightly crispy and lightly brown.

  3. Add the chopped garlic and a cup of water, and cook with the lid on until the liquid is evaporated.

  4. Half the tomatoes, and add them to the pork, and leave to cook until mushy.

  5. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.

  6. On a baking tray, spread out the tortilla chips, top with the ground pork, sliced olives, chopped red peppers, and mozzarella cheese.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  8. Serve with chopped spring onions or chillies, and the sauce of your choice.
