I am always on the lookout for a great Mexican dish to make at home. I usually make enchillidas, so I was interested in making this casserole to change up our usual Mexican night.
This casserole reminded me a lot of King Ranch Chicken but with ground beef. This was quick and easy to put together. I cooked my ground beef the night before and just mixed everything up when I got home from work. This is a very hearty and filling dish. It is also great reheated the next day. I think this would be a great dish to serve at a potluck dinner or even a tailgate party.

- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 can Ranch Style beans
- 1 10-12 ounce bag tortilla chips, crushed (I didn't use the whole bag)
- 1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 package taco seasoning
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1/2 cup water
- sour cream and salsa for serving
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large skillet, brown meat and drain off fat. Stir in beans, tomatoes, onion, taco seasoning, soup and water. Simmer over medium-low heat until everything is well combined and heated through.
Grease a 9×13 casserole dish. Put down a layer of crushed tortilla chips, followed by a layer of the meat/bean mixture, then half of the cheddar cheese. Repeat layers. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly.
Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Top with sour cream and salsa.
