"A wonderful and easy recipe. Big hit in my home, part of our weekly meal plan. Add sliced black or Spanish olives or pickled jalapeños and a side of salsa for a zesty version!"


Servings – 4 Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 30 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey

  • 2 roma or garden tomatoes, finely diced

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 cups shredded lettuce

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese

  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 3 Tablespoons cumin

  • 2 Tablespoons garlic powder

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) package tortilla chips

  • 2 fresh avocados, mashed

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • Taco sauce for garnish, optional

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced (optional)


In medium frying pan pour in refried beans, water and tablespoon of cumin. Stir until smooth over low heat.

In a large frying pan, brown ground beef or turkey (I use turkey), season with cumin, garlic, salt and pepper over medium heat. Break the meat into very small pieces while it is cooking. After the meat is thoroughly cooked, drain off the grease (if using beef).

Arrange 1/2 the chips on a platter. Spread beans over the chips. Layer with 1/2 of the cheese, the ground beef mixture, drizzle with optional taco sauce and jalapeño peppers. Repeat with a second layer.

Sprinkle tomatoes, shredded lettuce.

Serve immediately with sides of sour cream and mashed avocado.


Add salsa, sliced black and or Spanish olives.
