Recipe of the Month – Taco Casserole
School has begun again, and I figure all parents need an easy meal. If you (or you kids) like tacos, then this casserole is for you.
1 lb., lean ground beef
1 can spicy chili beans in sauce, undrained
1 cup thick & chunky salsa
2 cups coarsely broken tortilla chips
3/4 cup sour cream
4 medium green onions, sliced
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
whole tortilla chips, shredded lettuce and additional salsa, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in beans and salsa. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
In an ungreased 2-quart casserole, place broken tortilla chips. Top with beef mixture. Spread with sour cream. Sprinkle with onions, tomato and cheese. Bake uncovered, 20 to 30 minutes or until hot an bubbly. Arrange tortilla chips around edge of casserole. Serve with lettuce and salsa.
