1 lb ground beef
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 can zesty chili style tomatos
1 can kidney beans (drained & rinsed)
6oz tortilla chips (we like the lime or jalapeno with this recipe)
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or mexican blend)
1 bell pepper (sliced - optional)
Heat over to 350* and grease 2.5qt casserole dish.
In a large skillet, brown ground beef seasoned with garlic and onion powder. Add bell pepper and cook until tender. Add beans, tomatos, chili powder and cumin then cook until bubbly.
Break tortilla chips into smaller pieces and put half into the bottom of the casserole dish. Spoon half the beef mixture unto the chips and sprinkle with half the cheese. Add the last of the beef mixture. Top with remaining chips then sprinkle on the remaining cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes.
