1/2 pound ground beef

1 teaspoon chili powder (Spanish blend)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion

1/8 teaspoon paprika

2 tablespoons water

8 “restaurant sty le” corn tortilla chips

1/2 cup refried beans

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1/4 cup diced onion

1 large red jalapeno (or green) 

Condiments to serve on the side: 

Sour cream




Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Use a spatula or fork to crumble the beef into small pieces as it cooks. When you no longer see pink in the meat, drain off the fat. 

Add chili powder, salt, dried onion, paprika, and water to the meat. Simmer over medium/low heat for 10 minutes. 

Heat the refried beans in a small saucespan over low heat or in the microwave for about 2 minutes. 

Mix the two cheeses together in a small bowl. 

Arrange the tortilla chips on a baking sheet or an oven-safe ceramic plate. Spread about a tablespoon of refried beans on each chip. 

Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of spiced beef onto the beans on each chip. Press down on the beef to make a flat surface for the cheese. 

Carefully pile a small handful of cheese on each chip. 

Sprinkle a pinch of the diced onion over the cheese. 

Place a slice of jalapeno on top of the onion. 

Bake the chips for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve with your choice of sour cream, guacamole, and salsa on the side.
