I am always on the lookout for a great Mexican dish to make at home.  I usually make enchiladas, 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.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (15-oz) can Ranch Style beans
  • 1 (10-12 oz) bag tortilla chips, crushed (I didn't use the whole bag)
  • 1 (10-oz) can Rotel diced tomatoes & green chiles, undrained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (1-oz) package taco seasoning
  • 1 (10.75-oz) can cream of chicken soup
  • ½ cup water
  • sour cream and salsa for serving

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. 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.

Notes:

Can substitute ground turkey for ground beef.

  4. See, this is the kind of thing I luv. My hubby such a spoiled sport and doesn't go for casseroles.

    So, I'll just have to make it and have the Brother over to eat it with me and poor old hubby can drool and won't get any.

  5. Your Mexican Casserole certainly looks yummy! I have never tried cooking Mexican food before, this has really got me interested… !
