Easy Mexican Casserole
1 pound ground beef
2 C. salsa
1 (16 oz) can chili beans, drained
3 C. crushed tortilla chips
2 C. sour cream
1 (2 0z) can sliced black olives, drained
1/2 C. chopped green onions
1/2 C. chopped tomato
2 C. shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350*
Brown ground beef until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in salsa, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
Spray 9x13 pan. Spread crushed chips in bottom.
Spoon mixture over chips.
Spread sour cream over mixture.
Sprinkle with olives, onion and tomato.
Top with cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes.
I varied a couple of things when making this:
I cooked the onion with the beef and I didn't add olives as I didn't have any. I also used just regular old onions.
This was a definate hit with Papa Bear. I will say though, we were not near as impressed with it the next day as heated up leftovers. I guess that means we will have to eat it all the first time!
