1 1/2
cups refrigerated taco sauce with seasoned ground beef (from 18-oz container)
1
can (15 oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
1
cup chopped Italian plum tomatoes
3/4
cup diced peeled pitted avocado
1
can (11 oz) Green Giant® SteamCrisp® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn, red and green peppers, drained
1
cup shredded hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz)

  • 1 Heat grill. Cut four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Spread tortilla chips in center of each foil sheet.
  • 2 Spoon ground beef in taco sauce evenly over chips. Sprinkle all remaining ingredients evenly over beef mixture. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
