  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ½ medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 15.5 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 packet Siete mild taco seasoning (or another dairy-free taco seasoning)
  • cup water*
  • 6 single-serving bags of tortilla chips or corn chips (I like Siete tortilla chips)
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped


  1. Heat a large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the ground beef and the chopped onion. Cook for 7-8 minutes, using a spoon or spatula to break apart the meat as it cooks, until fully browned. Drain the pan if there is excess fat present after browning.
  2. Add the pinto beans, taco seasoning, and water to the pan. Cook for another 2-3 minutes over medium heat, until the sauce thickens and the beans are warm.

  3. When ready to eat, scoop the taco meat mixture into the bags of tortilla chips, and top with tomatoes, lettuce, and scallions. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • *The amount of water used here is proportional to the Siete taco seasoning; if you use another brand of taco seasoning follow package directions for how much water to use.
  • If there is excess grease in your pan, do not drain it into your sink, as the fat can clog pipes. Drain into a heat-safe bowl, and when the fat cools, you can throw it in the garbage.
  • Don’t add the taco meat to the bags of chips until directly before eating, or the chips will get soggy. If serving for a party, you can place bowls with all the ingredients out, and allow people to serve themselves when ready.
