2 lbs ground beef
2 (16oz) cans refried beans
2 8 oz cans of black olives, diced
1 small jar pepper rings 
taco seasoning
1 bag round tortilla chips
2 bags shredded mexican-style cheese
large jar of salsa

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC (400ºF)
  2. Spread a layer of chips on the bottom of a baking dish, enough to cover the bottom to a layer of 2-3 chips deep.
  3. Mix 1.5 cups of salsa and refried beans in a bowl. Microwave bowl long enough to heat beans and spread bean mixture on chips, add a layer of shredded cheese and cook until it melts.
  4. Cook ground beef, drain, and add 1/4 cup of taco seasoning and just enough water to make it not dry.
  5. Remove pan from oven, add ground beef, and another layer of cheese then heat in oven again to melt cheese.
  6. Remove pan from oven, add a layer of salsa, black olives, and pepper rings. Top off with more cheese and heat until it begins to melt.
