Beefy Tex-Mex Stir Fry | www.tasteandtellblog.com

There are times when you want to challenge yourself in the kitchen – cooking with techniques and ingredients that you’ve never used before. But then there are times when you just want something familiar and comforting. This recipe is for those kind of nights. Growing up, we would have called this a version of taco salad, but I’ll just call it good. Familiar flavors that combine together to make something easy, fast and delicious for dinner!

Beefy Tex-Mex Stir-Fry
slightly adapted from Every Day with Rachael Ray August 2008

Serves 4

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 poblano chile, seeded and finely chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 pound ground beef
1 tomato, finely chopped
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
salt and pepper
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the poblano, onion and chili powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking up the meat, until the meat is just cooked through. Stir in the tomato and tortilla chips and season with salt and pepper.

Divide the mixture among 4 plates and top with the cheese.

    a taste of home for me! My mom recently gave me a cookbook from her work that basically had 50 versions of the same Tex Mex meal- super funny!

    All kinds of Tex-Mex skillets blow me away, and as Katerina mentioned above, it would also be great as a Taco salad, which just happens to be one of my fav things to order when at places like TGI Fridays etc, but yours would trump any I've ordered, and no doubt taste 10 times better! Beautifully done. Oh, and those Buffalo chicken bites below are calling to me too! They look awesome and I love the presentation in the paper cup!

    This sounds really good! If you wanted to add the Asian flair, you could probably cook up some wonton wrappers, and use those as your chips!
