So here we go. I found a recipe that I knew would be a hit with us, the original poster called it "Mexican casserole",I pinned it HERE, but I have my own version of a Mexican casserole, so I will be calling this one "Taco casserole" instead.
The recipe was super easy, and really quick! Here is the recipe from the original poster, blog chef.....
Mexican CasserolePrep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes
|image above from blog chef|
1lb ground beef
1 (1 ¼ ounce) package taco seasoning
1 (15 ounce) can refried beans
2 cups Colby jack cheese
1 cup salsa
1 (2 1/3 ounce) can sliced black olives (drained)
1 tomato (chopped)
2 cups corn chips (crushed)
Step 1: In a large skillet brown ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions by adding the amount of water stated on the package. Set aside. Heat refried beans in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until hot. Stir in 1 cup of cheese and 1 cup of salsa. Stir until combined.
Step 2: Place crushed corn chips onto the bottom of an 8×8” casserole dish. Pour the bean mixture over the chips in the casserole dish. Add taco meat on top of the bean mixture. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top of the taco meat. Sprinkle green onions and black olives over the cheese.
Step 3: Bake in the oven at 375 degrees until the cheese has melted and the casserole is heated through. Take out of the oven and sprinkle with chopped tomatoes.
Yield: (4 Servings)
