Slimming World Recipe: Chilli Nacho Style Pasta Bake




You can't beat chilli nachos with lashings of cheese, sour cream and guacamole.  Tortillas are a no go on SW so I made this instead. It satisfied all my cravings, even though it was completely syn free!  Just use 40g of light cheddar as your healthy extra and cram the chilli with as much veg as possible.  For the topping I made a "mocck mole" instead of guacamole with superspeed mushy peas.


Extra Easy Syn Value:- Syn Free

Healthy Extras:-  

You will need:-

Low calorie cooking spray
1 large red onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 fresh chillies, deseeded and chopped
500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
2 tsps ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp paprika
A pinch of cayenne pepper
1 green pepper and 1 yellow pepper, chopped
4 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped
300ml beef stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
400g tin of red kidney beans
40g extra light cheddar cheese per person
Fat free fromage frais

For the guacamole:-

1 tin mushy peas
juice of 2 limes
a handful of finely chopped onion
a handful of finely chopped tomato
a handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped

Method:-

Spray a large saucepan with low calorie cooking spray and fry the onion and the garlic gently over a low heat for 5 minutes, until softened and golden. Add the minced beef and cook until browned. Add the chillies and spices and fry for a few minutes.

Add the peppers, tomatoes and stock. Stir well and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes until the liquid is reduced. Season to taste and add the kidney beans. Cook for a further 5 minutes.

Meanwhile to make the guacamole place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz to your desired consistency

Boil enough pasta to fill the dish you are cooking it in.

When the chilli is ready add half of it to the pasta and mix through.  Pour into your cooking dish and use the remaining chilli to pour over the top.

Sprinkle with 40g extra light cheddar per person and bake in the oven for 15 mins.  Top with the guacamole and a dollop fat free fromage fais and some extra chopped chillies

Syn calculations are all carried out as a paying Slimming World member. I am not a consultant!  It is always recommended to check syn values yourself.
