Easy Mexican Casserole




I found this recipe online, and can't remember what it was called. This was the first time I made it. When I cook, I choose recipes that don't have very many ingredients. I just hate to buy ingredients that I might not use again and have to throw them out.

Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
1 can (15 oz) chili beans
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
2 tablespoons taco sauce (I used mild Pace Picante sauce)
4 teaspoons chili powder (I didn't even use even 1 full teaspoon, as I can't take it too spicy)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or salt
1 tomato, chopped
2 cups tortilla chips
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sliced green onions with tops
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:

Cook beef and drain. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, taco sauce, chili powder and garlic powder. Heat to boiling. Place chips in ungreased 12x8x2-inch baking dish. Top with beef mixture. Spread with sour cream. Sprinkle with onions, tomatoes and cheese. 

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until hot. Arrange additional tortilla chips around edge of casserole. Serve with shredded lettuce, chili peppers, and taco sauce, if desired. (I skipped that step entirely.)

Time: 30 minutes

This is what it looked like out of the oven:




It was very tasty. I had a salad with it. I can eat on this for four days most likely. So I can get going decorating without stopping to fix a meal from scratch!

Enjoy!

  4. Don't you love it when you can make a dish and have leftovers? I know I do--It certainly makes it easier at dinner time. ♥

  7. That looks really good.

    My family hates casseroles and even more, they hate anything I make. Fortunately, Steve loves to cook. Now that our daughter lives near, she is coming over and cooking wonderful meals too.

  11. Yum! This would make a good company dish too, if you needed to feed a crowd. It'd be easy to double the recipe.

  12. Well you are like me..I need to use the MILD sauce in recipes like this! :) I cannot handle the hotter stuff / this looks wonderful! :)

    I remember dating my first husband ( in my late teens ) down in Mon Valley ( where Joe Montana, football star, came from...two years ahead of me in school ) Anyway...over the river and bridge was a place that served ribs.

    This was like a trailer or something...just standing up at a counter.But it was THE PLACE to be! :)

    I could ONLY handle the "Mild Child" and still had tears streaming from my eyes and needed to blow my nose. Too much Fair Skinned Nordic in my Background, I guess....the Italians etc could handle the harder stuff.

    White Wonder Bread and Red Cherokee pop were the sides. For some reason YOUR wonderful post brought back THIS wonderful memory! :)
