Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 1 Cup Cheddar cheese
  • 2 jalapeños, chopped
  • Shredded lettuce, for topping
  • Diced tomatoes, for topping
  • Guacamole, for topping
  • Sour cream, for topping

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the oil to a pan over medium high heat, add the beef, and break up with a wooden spoon.

Continue to break the meat into small pieces; add salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, onions, and peppers. Mix until well combined.

Stir the meat occasionally for 8 to 10 minutes making sure all sides are browned. The meat is done when there is no pink in the larger chunks of ground beef.

Add tortilla chips to a baking dish, top with cooked ground beef, cheese, and jalapeños. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, guacamole, and sour cream. 

Ground Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Ground Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
