- 1 pound ground beef
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 head lettuce, chopped
- 5 cups crushed nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips
- 2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese
- 1 (15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 tomato, diced
- ⅓ cup chopped onion
- ¼ cup pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped

- Toss lettuce, tortilla chips, Colby-Jack cheese, kidney beans, tomato, onion, and pickled jalapeno peppers in a large salad bowl; mix in the beef.
