How to make Mexican Casserole
1 pound lean ground beef
15 ounce can ranch-style beans
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
1 can condensed cream of mushroom or chicken soup
12 ounce package corn tortillas
4 cups shredded cheese
3 tablespoons Taco Seasoning
1 bag Tortilla Chips on the side if desired
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat. Drain excess fat if desired.
After beef is browned, add taco seasoning, beans, diced tomatoes/green chilies, and soup. Mix well and heat.
In a 13×9 baking dish, cover bottom of the dish with about a cup of meat mixture.
Top this mixture with a single layer of corn tortillas.
Put 1/2 of the remaining meat mixture on top of the tortilla layer and then cover with cheese.
Repeat a layer of corn tortillas.
Place remaining meat mixture on top and finish off with the remaining cheese.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes, uncovered.
Serve with tortilla chips if desired.
