  • 3 tablespoons olive oil use divided
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • pounds ground sirloin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (4-ounce) can mild green chilies, diced
  • 1 (4-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 (7.5 ounce) box Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup water
  • cups grated cheddar cheese use divided
  • 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
Optional garnishes:
  • Sour cream
  • Avocado slices
  • Salsa
  • Cilantro
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the ground beef and cook until fully browned. Drain any fat from the pan. Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring. Add the salt, pepper, chili powder, and ground cumin and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the canned tomatoes (with the juices), chilies, and olives. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Put mixture into a 9 by 12 inch baking dish (or if using a cast iron skillet, leave in the pan).
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the bread mix with 2 tablespoons oil, the eggs, water, 1 cup cheese, green onions, and sugar. Mix to combine – mixture may be clumpy, that’s OK.
  4. Dump the dough onto a clean work surface and knead until smooth. Pat into a size that will fit the dish using to bake and place on top of the meat mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup cheese and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until the dough crust is browned.
