  • 1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1/4 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 16-oz can refried beans
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salad toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, olives, sour cream, etc.


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion, and green pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally until meat is browned.
  2. While the meat is browning, spread 1 cup crushed tortilla strips in the bottom of a greased 8×8″ pan. Heat the refried beans in a small, microwaveable bowl (about 60 seconds) until they are warmed through. Spread the refried beans gently over the top of the tortilla chips.
  3. Once the meat is browned, drain and return to stove. Add 1/2 cup of water and taco seasoning to the meat mixture, and stir until completely combined. Pour browned meat mixture over the top of the refried beans.
  4. Top with the cup of cheddar cheese, and then broil in the oven for 2-4 minutes (until the cheese is melted and starts to bubble). Top with your favorite salad toppings and serve warm.
