2 stalks green onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, diced
A handful fresh cilantro, chopped
Shredded lettuce
Sour cream


1. Preheat oven to 350F

3. Add tomato, onion, jalapenos, black beans, seasonings, and water.
4. Bring to a simmer, and simmer for 5 minutes.
5. While beef is simmering, get out a 9x9 pan and put a layer of chips in the pan.

7. Top with half the green onions then half the cheese.
8. Do another layer following the same pattern above.
