Servings 10 persons


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • Up to 16 tortilla chips
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 16 ounces shredded cheese of choice like Cheddar or Monterey jack
  • 3 roma tomatoes diced
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • Taco Seasoning


  • Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.
  • Meanwhile on the stovetop, brown the ground beef and diced onions over medium-high heat until fully cooked for about 6-8 minutes, then 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.
