Family Food Faves

Fast, simple & healthy... I think we'll be eating this one once a week!

Beefy Tex-Mex Stir Fry

recipe courtesy
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 (you can also use ground turkey or chicken)
1 tomato, finely chopped
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
Salt and pepper
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high 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, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato and tortilla chips and season with salt and pepper. Portion onto plates and top with cheese.

***I tweaked it a little for the boys. In a separate skillet, I prepared it the same as above except I omitted the poblano pepper and I added some frozen corn.***
