When my children were younger we went to this restaurant that served a delicious cheese and ground meat over tortilla chips. The owner’s name was Elaine and I dedicate this recipe to her memory. We never made it quite as good but we have not eaten quite as good either.
- 1 lb lean ground meat
- 1 (8 oz) package shredded Mild Mexican Style Cheddar Cheese
- 2 1/2 tsp chili powder plus 1/2 tsp (3 tsp total)
- 2 small onions, chopped
- Jalapeno pepper, sliced (optional)
- Season All, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste
- Tortilla Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Season ground meat with Season-All, garlic powder, onion powder and 2 1/2 tsp chili powder. Brown in skillet and drain excess grease.
In a separate pan, preferably nonstick, sauté the onions until wilted, adding black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp chili powder and season all to taste. Combine the meat and onion mixture together.
On a cookie sheet, arrange a single layer of chips (you can add the optional peppers here) and spread the mixture over the chips. Sprinkle the cheese over the meat and chips.
Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese melts and serve immediately. I like to serve it with salsa on the side.
