1 (2 oz.) can sliced black olives, drained

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium high heat until brown. Stir in the salsa, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the beans and heat thoroughly.

Spread the crushed tortilla chips into the bottom of the baking dish. Spoon the beef mixture over the chips. Spread the sour cream on top of the beef mixture. Sprinkle on the olives, green onion and tomato. Top with the cheddar cheese.
