But this sheet panning situation is clearly trending. And I hope it becomes a permanent deal.

Because sheet pans need to rule the world.

With its vast real estate and baking vessel, it also works as a rustic serving dish.

It’s a win-win for all parties involved, particularly the clean-up crew.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 12 ounces tortilla chips
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted

  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

  3. Place tortilla chips in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Top with ground beef mixture, black beans, corn and cheeses.
  4. Place into oven and bake until heated through and the cheese melts, about 5-6 minutes.
