Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste

  • 4 flour tortillas (7 inches)
  • 2 cups crushed corn chips

Directions

  1. Crumble meat into a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish; add onion and green pepper. Cover and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes or until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the taco seasoning, tomato sauce, tomato paste, olives, water and chili powder. Cover and cook at 50% power for 10 minutes or until thickened, rotating dish once.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, sour cream and pepper. Place two tortillas in an 11x7-in. microwave-safe dish. Layer with half of the sour cream mixture and meat sauce; repeat. Top with corn chips and cheese.
