2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeño (sub green bell pepper for less spiciness)
1 pound ground beef
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chicken stock or water
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
4 bags corn chips
shredded cheddar cheese
shredded lettuce

3. Cook beef until browned all the way through. Add chili powder and paprika. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant.
