Ingredient List

  • 5 cups tortilla chips
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef (at least 93%)
  • 1 cans (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 package (1 ounce) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped (2/3 cups)
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
  • 2 cups finely shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese (8 ounces)


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line 12-inch pizza pan or 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. Spread half of chips evenly on pan. Set aside.
  2. In 8-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and green chiles. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until beef is thoroughly cooked and seasoning is well combined.
  3. Arrange half of beef mixture on chips. Top with half of other toppings. Repeat layers ending with cheese. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Add additional FRESH toppings if desired.
