This quick meal starts on the stove then bakes in the oven. Baked tortilla chips deliver lots of crunch with less fat than fried corn chips.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and minced
  • 1 sweet green pepper chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) black bean drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup crumbled baked tortilla chip
  • 1 cup crumbled corn chip
  • 3/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced

Method

In large nonstick ovenproof skillet, saute beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat.

Add onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, green pepper, cumin, salt, pepper and oregano; cook over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add black beans, tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stir-ring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in corn.

Sprinkle with tortilla chips and Cheddar cheese; bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with onion.
