In 1 1/2-quart microwavable casserole, crumble beef. Cover loosely; microwave on high 2 minutes 30 seconds to 3 minutes 30 seconds or until beef is thoroughly cooked. Stir and drain.
Stir in bell pepper, onion, beans, tomato sauce, seasoning mix, pepper sauce, and garlic. Cover tightly; microwave on high 3 minutes. Stir; spread mixture in 9-inch microwavable pie plate. Cover; microwave on high 3 to 4 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
In small bowl, mix sour cream, 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese, and the chili powder. Spread over beef mixture. Sprinkle with lettuce and additional cheddar cheese. Serve with corn chips.

Bored with iceberg lettuce? Switch to crispy romaine, a dark leafy green regarded as a good source of vitamin A and folate.
Lighten up this taco treat with fat-free sour cream and reduced-fat cheddar cheese.
