  • Spread half the ground beef mixture over the chips.
  • Sprinkle half the cheese over the meat and repeat the layers.
  • Cover with the lid or tightly with aluminum foil.

Recipe Expert Tips

  • You can use an envelope of taco seasoning instead of homemade taco seasoning. If you use the envelope omit the flour which is used as a thickening agent when using homemade taco seasoning.
