  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 cup tomato salsa

Top the cheese layer with another 1 1/2 cups tortilla chips, the remaining ground beef, 1/3 cup Oaxaca cheese, 1/3 cup cheddar and 1/3 cup queso blanco. Top the second layer with the remaining chips and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
  4. Transfer the platter to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to bubble.
  5. Place the platter on a trivet or other heatproof surface and garnish with the queso fresco, avocado, salsa, scallions and cilantro.
