How To Make A Walking Taco

Ingredients

Chili

  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 6-8 little sweet peppers or 1 green and 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • Pinch of kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 Cup Herdez Salsa or your favorite salsa
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 Cup warm water
  • 3 cans of beans drained (I used black, pinto and red kidney)
  • 1 can black olives sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce Tabasco
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of Kosher salt fresh cracked black pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley (to taste)
  • 1/2 Cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • Bags of Fritos or Doritos

Toppings

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped Jalapenos or green onions

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and peppers for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add ground beef, salt and pepper. Cook until browned. Drain if needed. I usually don’t need to for the lean beef. Pour in tomatoes, salsa, tomato paste then stir to combine. Add 1 Cup warm water to thin out slightly then add in beans, olives, chili powder, cumin, hot sauce, lime juice, salt, pepper and garlic salt. I start with just a pinch of salt then keep tasting until it’s to my liking. Add chopped cilantro and reduce heat to low to simmer until ready to serve.
  • Open bags of fritos or Doritos. Spoon in chili, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos. Stick a fork in it and eat!!
