  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled onion
  • 1 package ORTEGA Taco Seasoning Mix - Regular
  • 1 can (8-oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6-oz.) tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups corn chips

Crumble ground beef into a microwave-safe baking dish. Add green bell pepper and onion. Microwave on HIGH for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the meat loses its pink color and the vegetables are tender; drain.

Mix in taco seasoning mix, tomato sauce, tomato paste, black olives, water and chili powder. Microwave at MEDIUM power for 10 to 15 seconds, or until thick.

In a small bowl blend together sour cream, eggs and pepper. Place tortillas in the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan and cover with half the meat mixture followed by half the sour cream mixture. Repeat. Sprinkle with broken corn chips and Monterey Jack cheese. Microwave on MEDIUM for 10 to 15 seconds, or until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
