2-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
3/4 cup water
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 package (12-1/2 ounces) nacho tortilla chips, crushed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded monterey jack cheese

In a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in water, tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325°. Place tortilla chips in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese. Spread meat mixture over top; sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Top with lettuce and onion. Cut into ten 5x3-in. pieces. On each piece, arrange two tomato slices for eyes; top each with a dollop of sour cream and an olive half.
