  1. Open and rinse the beans, grate the cheese, and set aside.
  2. For the salsa, chop and seed the tomatoes, and combine with the diced pepper, lime juice and zest and season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  3. For the tomatillo salsa, place a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cut the tomatillos in half and char them cut side down. When lightly charred- add the green onion, the garlic and the jalapeno to the pan. Char those items too!
  4. Place the charred items in a food processor with the cilantro and lime and pulse the mixture until it is a pourable consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place  a layer of corn chips on a baking sheet and sprinkle with half the corn, cheese, and beans. Add another layer of toppings and bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes or under the broiler until golden brown and the cheese is melty.
  6. Open and seed the avocados and mash them with a fork. Add in the lime, cumin, salt and pepper. Adjust the seasoning as desired and serve the guac with the salsa and sour cream on the side .
