Preheat oven to 375 and make sure the baking dish (or cast iron skillet) is lightly greased.
Heat up a cooking pan over medium heat and add a couple of tablespoons of oil for cooking.
Dice onions, tomatoes, jalapeno, and chili pepper. (You can choose to discard the seeds or keep the seeds for extra spice.)
Start to cook onions until transparent. Add jalapeno and chili pepper and saute until softened.
Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add tomatoes and cook until all veggies are softened.
Add ground beef and break it up as much as possible. Cover with a lid and cook until the meat it done. Mix and break apart the clumps occasionally, as meat cooks.
Sprinkle taco seasoning over the beef and stir everything together well.
Once meat is cooked, transfer the meat and veggies mixture into a mixing bowl.
Stir in cream cheese until completely combined and smooth.
Stir in 1 cup of Mexican cheese mix and transfer into a baking dish or skillet.
Top off with remaining cup of Mexican cheese mix and sprinkle chipotle chili powder and paprika over the cheese.
Bake for about 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbles.
