I mentioned yesterday in my Sunday meanderings that I was making taco casserole for Sunday dinner. Several people emailed me asking for my recipe. So here you go!
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 8-oz. bottle taco sauce, any flavor
3/4 cup water
1 4-oz. can diced green chiles
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
broken tortilla chips
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Garnishes: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, diced green onion, diced avocado and sour cream
Preheat oven to 375* Spray an 11 X 17-inch baking dish with Pam.
Cook beef and onion in a large skillet until beef is browned; drain. Stir in taco sauce, water, chiles and taco seasoning mix; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes.
Cover bottom of baking dish with a layer of tortilla chips. Cover with half the meat mixture. Sprinkle with one cup cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Just before serving place unbroken tortilla chips all over the top. Serve with garnishes.
That photo up there is all pretty and gorgeous. I don't have food artists to do touchup work on my kitchen masterpieces so this is what it looks like when I make it. My husband didn't even bother to ask me why I was taking a picture of dinner last night. Can you believe that?
