Easy Mexican Casserole
My family loves this dish. It's basically everything Mexican tossed in a dish and baked to perfection. I can even see adding Spanish rice to this dish. MMmmm.
1lb ground beef
2 cups salsa
1 (16 oz) can chili beans, drained
3 cups crushed tortilla chips
2 cups sour cream
1 (2 oz) can sliced black olives, drained
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or the Mexican Blend)
1. preheat oven to 350
2. in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink. stir in salsa, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. stir beans, and heat through.
3. spray 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. spread crushed chips in dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. spread sour cream over beef, and sprinkle olives, green onions, and tomato over the sour cream. top with cheese.
4. bake in preheated oven or 30min or until hot and bubbly.
