Image title

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef or turkey
¼ cup diced onion
¼ cup diced green pepper
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
½ cup water
1 (1-ounce) packet taco seasoning or 2 tablespoons Homemade Taco Seasoning (see recipe)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salad toppings, such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, olives, sour cream, etc.

Directions

Preheat oven broiler to high. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion, and green pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until meat is browned. While the meat is browning, spread crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of a greased, broiler-safe 8x8-inch pan. Heat the refried beans in a small, microwave-safe bowl for 60 seconds, or until warmed through. Spread the refried beans gently over the top of the tortilla chips. Once the meat is browned, drain and return to stove. Add ½ cup water and taco seasoning and stir until well combined. Pour browned meat mixture over the top of the refried beans. Top with cheddar cheese and place under broiler 2 to 4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and starts to bubble. Top with your favorite salad toppings and serve warm.
