Servings: 4 to 6
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 tablespoon olive oil
Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips, divided
1 pound ground beef
1 (1.25-ounce) packet taco seasoning mix, or homemade Taco Seasoning, recipe follows
1 cup prepared salsa
1 cup sour cream
1 avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar (4 ounces)

Taco Seasoning:

1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Preheat the broiler.

Spray a broiler-proof 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of the crushed chips over the bottom of the pie plate.

Brown the beef in the skillet, breaking it up with a fork, until the meat is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour off the drippings and add the taco seasoning. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer the meat to the pie plate, spreading it on top of the chips.

Spread the salsa over the meat and then the sour cream over the salsa. Scatter the avocado cubes over the sour cream. Top with the cheese. Broil 4 inches from the heat until the cheese is melted and bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes, watching carefully to see that the cheese doesn’t burn. Top with the remaining tortilla chips. Serve hot.

Taco Seasoning:

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, sugar, and salt. Use immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 6 months.

Sooo good! Easy to make and gone in minutes! I used venison to substitute the ground beef, some of my family won't touch venison(they say it tastes gross), so my dad and i waited til it was gone, and then we told everyone. No one could taste the difference. They couldn't believe it wasn't beef. Now its the only thing they ask me to bring to picnics and its requested with venison only!

Thank you much for the Taco Seasoning recipe. I just happened on it & I have every spice that I need for it. I am going to make a batch to keep on hand for taco night, as I hate buying the packets. But tacos just don't taste the same without it.

Pretty good, nothing special. I don't see the value of the avocado. I will probably make this again with a few updates (add some green onions or black olives to the top instead of avocado).
