Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion to the hot skillet; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in diced tomatoes, black beans, picante sauce, and taco seasoning. Simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Spread flour tortillas in the prepared baking dish, overlapping to cover the bottom and sides. Spread beef mixture over tortillas, and sprinkle with 3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, 3/4 cup pepper Jack cheese, and 1 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and discard foil. Sprinkle remaining Monterey Jack cheese, pepper Jack cheese, and crushed tortilla chips on top. Place back in the oven and bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted and bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion and cilantro and serve with sour cream.
