Ingredients

baked low fat tortilla chips

32 item(s)

WW Reduced fat shredded Mexican style blend cheese

½ cup(s)

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

uncooked 93% lean ground beef

6 oz

dried oregano

½ tsp

table salt

½ tsp, or more to taste

canned diced tomatoes

¾ cup(s), with adobe (smoky/spicy) or chipolte (hot)

canned refried black beans

cup(s)

uncooked scallion(s)

½ cup(s), finely sliced

jalapeño pepper(s)

2 medium, finely minced (or to taste; do not touch seeds with bare hands)

Instructions

  1. Preheat broiler to high. Arrange tortilla chips on a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer but close together; set aside.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat as it cooks, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with oregano and salt; stir in tomatoes and beans. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Spoon beef mixture over chips; sprinkle with cheese. Broil until cheese melts, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from broiler; sprinkle with scallions and jalapenos. Yields 4 chips with toppings per serving.

Notes

If you like things really spicy, pile on the jalapenos and consider pickled jalapenos for extra zing.
