Easy Mexican Casserole

I found out about this easy recipe from my friend and fellow foodie, Candy.

1 lb. ground turkey, beef or chicken
2 c. salsa
1 packet of taco seasoning
16 oz. can of chili beans, drained
3 c. tortilla chips, crushed
2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. green onion
1/2 c. chopped tomato
2 c. shredded Mexican blend cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet, thoroughly cook meat. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning and let simmer for a few minutes. Stir in beans and heat through.

Spray 9×13 casserole dish with cooking spray.

Spread crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of the dish and cover with cooked meat mixture.

Spread sour cream on top.

Sprinkle green onions and tomato on top.

Top with cheddar cheese.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Did I change anything? I did change a few things from the original recipe. I left out the olives since we don’t do olives here. I also added the taco seasoning, which I think was Candy’s idea. I have also added a small can of corn before, too.

What does the family think? My hubby likes it, but I love this dish when it is served with guacamole. The guacamole makes this dish… or maybe it’s just guacamole makes everything taste better. 🙂 The kids aren’t too keen on it, but they will eat their required bites.

  1. We made this one last night. The boys loved it!
    Kacey gave the high complement that it “tastes just like tacos” and they both ate all we gave them and asked for more.

    Definitely a make again.

  2. Wow! They asked for more? I don’t think that ever happens at our house with any dish.
