Ingredients

  • 8 ounce chips
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 large sweet onion diced, divided
  • 3 roma tomatoes diced
  • 1-2 jalapeno finely diced
  • 1/3 cup Cilantro chopped
  • 1 juice of lime
  • salt to taste
  • 10 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 avocado diced
  • Sour Cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Make the pico de gallo by mixing together 1/2 of the chopped onion, 3 Roma tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Add the beef and other half onion in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink and onions are translucent. Drain off the fat, and mix in the water and taco seasoning. Bring to a simmer, cover and turn down to low. Simmer for 8-10 minutes until tender. Stir in the black beans (add another 1/4 cup water if too thick) and simmer another 4-5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, line a large rimmed baking sheet with a layer of chips.
  5. Spoon half the meat/bean mixture over the chips followed by half the cheese. Add a second layer of chips and repeat with meat mixture and cheese. Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted.
  6. Top with pico de gallo, avocados, extra cilantro, and sour cream. Serve immediately.
