1 bag restaurant size lime flavored tortilla chips
1 packet taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1 jar medium salsa
2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons sliced scallions
2 tablespoons sliced black olives
1 tablespoon taco sauce
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
This is best done in a cast-iron skillet.
Brown ground meat over medium heat and drain off excess fat. Return skillet to burner and sprinkle taco seasoning over meat, add water and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for approximately 10 minutes. Place meat in a bowl and reserve.
Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel and line the bottom and sides of the skillet with the tortilla chips. Spoon the reserved meat into the skillet over the tortilla chips lining the bottom of the pan. Spread meat out evenly. Spoon the salsa over the meat and then place a layer of the Monterrey Jack cheese on top.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for approximately 7 minutes, until cheese is almost completely melted. Sprinkle the scallions and olives over the cheese and then drizzle the taco sauce over the scallions and olives. Bake for another 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese is completely melted.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
