You can make this party dip ahead of time and reheat it when you're ready to serve. Chipotle chile powder is spicy, so adjust the amount to suit your taste.
1/2 pound ground sirloin
2 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste
1 to 2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled queso fresco
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 ounces bite-size baked tortilla chips (about 60, such as Tostitos Scoops)
How to Make It
Cook beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; return beef to pan. Add tomato paste and next 4 ingredients (through diced tomatoes), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally.
Spoon meat mixture into a serving bowl; top with crumbled cheese and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.
Everyone in our family loved this dip. It was even a hit with my husband who usually only likes really cheesy, Velvetta type dips. It had a really good flavor, we could not stop eating. I will be making this again for sure.
