How to Make It
  1. In a large non-stick sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the beef, using a spatula to break up the meat. Cook until the meat has browned, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add tomato paste, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir in the kidney beans. Simmer for 5 minutes and then remove from heat.
  3. To assemble the meals, evenly divide the beef and bean mixture among 4 containers. Top each portion with an equal amount of shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, olives, and cilantro. Serve each meal with ½ avocado, sliced, and 1 oz (28 g) corn chips.
