  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅓ cup chopped pickled jalapeños
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 ½ tablespoons taco seasoning

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup salsa
  • One 14-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup green onions, sliced
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a large cast-iron (or other oven-safe) sauté pan over medium heat.

2. When the oil is hot, add the onion and sauté until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeños and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.

3. Add the ground beef, and cook until it’s well browned, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in the taco seasoning, and season with salt and pepper. Add the salsa and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Remove the pan from the heat and then add both cheeses in an even layer. Bake until the cheese is melted and the chili is bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes.

5. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving warm, garnished with green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.
