Place a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the flour, then cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. While whisking briskly, slowly pour in the milk a little at a time until it is fully incorporated.
Bring the milk mixture to a boil, whisking frequently. Remove from heat, add the blue cheese, and whisk until melted. Taste and season with salt and pepper, as desired. Cover to keep warm and to prevent a skin from forming on the sauce.
Place a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil followed by the Laura's 92% Lean ground beef. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cook the meat, breaking it up as you go, until it is mostly cooked, about 5 minutes.
Add the diced white or yellow onion to the ground beef and continue cooking until the onions become tender and the beef is fully cooked, about 3 minutes more. Remove from the heat, cover, and set aside.
Evenly distribute the tortilla chips among 4 large plates. Pour an even amount of the blue cheese sauce over the chips followed by the beef, crumbled blue cheese, chopped tomato, chopped parsley, jalapenos, and onion. Serve immediately.
