Taco Casserole #SundaySupper

This casserole tastes like a deconstructed taco. It is thick, hearty and even though it is 4 servings, it is pretty darn filling. My family went absolutely bonkers over it.

It’s made with crushed tortilla chips, lean ground beef, chunky salsa and lots of hot bubbly cheese. Not only does it make for a good dinner, but it would be great to serve a Super Bowl party.

I just made my beef mixture, topped it with cheese and baked it. Top with tomatoes and serve with lettuce and sour cream. Well I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Trust me know one knows the difference. You can top it with the lettuce, but I served it on the side. Since I have leftovers, I just re-heat in the oven until the cheese is hot.

  3. In a baking dish (9 x 10), add broken tortilla chips (enough to cover the bottom of the baking dish). Top with ground beef mixture. Top with cheese. Bake in oven for 20 - 25 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
  4. Top with lettuce and tomatoes. Note: If you plan on having left overs, omit the lettuce and place the lettuce on your plate and top with beef and chips if desired.

This can also be served with black olives, avocado, and hot sauce.

All I can say is yum!  One of my favorite foods in the world is tacos.  Having it this way is so much better because it fills me up so much and I am getting the meat and not so much of a shell.  It is simply a delicious dish.
