Taco Seasoning (or you can use one packet/ serving of store-bought taco seasoning)
1 pound ground beef
1/2 yellow onion diced
2 bags tortilla chips (16 ounces each)
1 can refried beans
16 ounces shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar and Monterey jack)
3 roma tomatoes diced
2 to 3 green onions sliced
-Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.
-Meanwhile on the stovetop, brown the ground beef and diced onions over medium-high heat until fully cooked (about 8 minutes) and drain.
-Return the beef to the pan, and sprinkle on the taco seasoning.
-Stir in 3/4 cup water, bring it to a simmer, reduce heat and simmer until the liquid mostly evaporates, about 5 minutes.
-While the beef is cooking, add a generous layer of chips to two baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
-Spoon on refried beans, half on each pan. These are thick, but I just add spoon fulls all over the chips. (The spoon fulls will spread with the heat of the oven.)
-Spoon on half the ground beef to each pan of chips.
-Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
-Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
-Remove from the oven, and sprinkle on diced tomatoes and green onions.
