Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef (or a combo of turkey and beef)
  • 6 sliced bacon, diced (if you dice it semi-frozen, you can dice it more finely, which is preferable)
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, diced
  • ⅔ cup tomato chutney
  • 2 cups cooked kidney beans (I used an heirloom kidney bean but you can use 1 can, drained and rinsed)
  • 2 cups cooked pinto beans (I used a comparable heirloom bean but you can use 1 can, drained and rinsed)
  • 2 cups cooked corn--I used fresh, frozen will work as well
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips (I used blue corn tortilla chips)
