Mexican Casserole Recipe

Hi there peeps!  It's been a long time since I've posted and that means I have a lot to talk about...which is usually not a problem for me :) For this first post I want to tell you about this blog I found with some awesome recipes - it's called Plain Chicken.  I found several recipes that I want to try and the first one was Mexican Casserole.  The family liked it so much that I have permission to make it again (aren't they so sweet!).  It is super easy to make but let me tell you it calls for Ranch style beans. They aren't plain old navy beans with Ranch dressing in them, but more of a Tex Mex flavor of beans.

Get the recipe for Mexican Casserole after the jump.....

Here's the recipe for Mexican Casserole.  A side of Mexicorn and a salad would make this a great meal for your family.

Mexican Casserole
1 pound lean ground beef
1 can Ranch Style beans
1 10-12 ounce bag tortilla chips, crushed (I used the entire bag of chips)
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided (I used another 1/2 cup of cheese)
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.
