There is a lot of food in this recipe, but it’s a solid choice if you have a bunch of people over for a movie or the game.
Step 1: Fire up your stove to a medium heat, and put a skillet with the ground beef in it on there. Cook it until it goes brown and crumbly, then drain the excess grease.
Step 2: Pour in the taco seasoning and water, and give it all a good stir until it has thickened – that should be about 10 minutes, maybe a little less. You can ignore them now for a few minutes.
Step 3: Your oven rack should be about six inches from the heat source. Preheat the broiler, and place some aluminum foil on a baking sheet.
Step 4: Take your tortilla chips, and spread them evenly around the baking sheet from step three.
Step 5: Top the tortillas with the cheese, then dot them with the refried beans and the beef mixture from earlier.
Step 6: Broil it in the oven until the cheese is nicely melted – it should only take a few minutes.
Step 7: Take the tortillas out of the oven. These are best served on a large serving plate. Top them with the salsa, sour cream, black olives, green onions and slice jalapenos.
Isn’t that awesome? Be prepared for everybody to tell you how great it tastes and how stuffed they are!
