1/4 cup water
2 1/2 cups coarsely broken tortilla chips
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 1/2 cups chopped tomato
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
chopped pepper, either serrano or jalapeno

Brown ground beef in skillet, draining grease if necessary. Stir in garlic, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt, black pepper and water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Simmer beef mixture for about five minutes.
Add the beans and salsa and mix well. Remove from heat. In casserole dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray layer two cups of the tortilla chips, beef mixture. chopped pepper, one cup of the chopped tomato, green onions, cheese and cilantro.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Top with remaining tortilla chips and tomato as well as whatever other taco toppings you like. Serve and enjoy!
