  • 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


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Make the Pico de Gallo by mixing together ½ of the chopped onion, 3 Roma tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Set aside.
  • Add the beef and other ½ of the chopped onion to a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until no longer pink and the 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 ¼ cup of water if too thick) and simmer another 4-5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line a large rimmed baking sheet with a layer of chips.
  • 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.
  • Top with pico de gallo, avocados, extra cilantro, and sour cream. Serve immediately.
