Cook and stir until the meat is no longer pink. Make sure to drain all the fat well and continue to cook until the meat is well browned. Add in refried beans, salsa then cook and stir until heated through. Add in 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Place the tortilla chips on a large serving platter. Top with ground beef mixture, then sprinkle the top of the still-hot ground beef mixture with about 1-1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese. Top with sour cream, green onions, tomatoes, avocado and black olives. Serve hot. Baked bacon jalapeno wraps Did someone say bacon?! Add a little green to that otherwise greasy food and you’ll have an addictive snack that is both easy and cheap since it requires very few ingredients. It’s perfect for game day entertaining and can be made in the oven or on the grill. Make sure you soak the toothpicks or bamboo skewers you use in water first so that they don’t catch on fire or burn. Ingredients: 12 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded 2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese Cajun seasoning 24 slices bacon Toothpicks Directions: Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Add Cajun seasoning to cream cheese and spread cream cheese to fill jalapeno halves. Wrap with bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Place on the grill, and cook until bacon is crispy.
