Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus extra for the pan
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (4 oz bag) plain pork rinds
  • 4 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup pickled sliced jalapenos

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a rimmed casserole dish with olive oil (a 9 X 13-inch baking dish will work).
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef. Cook, stirring and breaking up the meat, until no longer raw, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  • Return the drained beef to the skillet. Over medium heat, stir in the kosher salt, black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper.
  • Spread the pork rinds in a single layer on the prepared pan. Top with the cooked ground beef, then sprinkle the cheese evenly on top and top with the jalapenos.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately, with your choice of toppings such as sour cream, guacamole, and salsa.
