  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion for 5 mins, stirring, until softened and lightly golden. Add the mince, breaking up it with a wooden spoon, and fry for 5 mins until golden brown. Add the taco seasoning and cook for 2 mins, stirring to toast the spices. Pour in the beans including the water and cook for 5 mins until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir through the salsa dip. 
  3. Arrange the tortilla chips on a large baking tray. Spoon the beef taco mince onto the tortillas, leaving some tortillas around the edge empty. Sprinkle over the cherry tomatoes, sliced jalapenos and cheese. Place under the grill for 5 mins until the nachos are crispy and the cheese is melted. 
  4. Sprinkle over the red chilli and spring onions; bring to the table along with the sour cream dip.
