Fresh Mex Casserole

My husband likes this dish so much he claims he could eat it for a month and not tire of it. (I know him better, though.  Too much repetition ruins things for him.  Remind me to tell you sometime about how much he hates having a song stuck in his head!)

Anyway, back to the dish at hand. At our house it’s a winner.  Everyone likes it.  It’s also simple and easy to make.

Fresh Mex Casserole Ingredients:
2 cups crushed tortilla chips 1 pound lean ground beef 2 cups salsa, your choice 1 can chili beans 1 1/2 cups sour cream 1/2 cup chopped green onions 3/4 cup chopped tomato 1/2 cup chopped cilantro 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese Spray bottom of 9×13 inch pan lightly with cooking spray.  Spread crushed tortilla chips over bottom of pan.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef.  Add salsa and reduce heat to simmer until the liquid is almost absorbed.  Add chili beans and heat through.  Spoon meat mixture over crushed tortilla chips.

Carefully spread 1 1/2 cups sour cream over the meat.  Sprinkle onions, tomatoes, cilantro and cheese over the sour cream.

Look how delicious it looks!

Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.  Share with your family.  I hope you love it!
