What I really enjoy most about this Mexican Casserole, besides the amazing flavors is how easy it is to prepare. A great weeknight meal the whole family will enjoy!
- 1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning, low sodium
- 1 (15 ounce) can refried beans, fat free
- 2 cups colby jack cheese, low fat
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 (2 1/3 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
- 1 tomato, chopped
- Green onions, chopped
- 2 cups corn chips, divided
In a large skillet brown ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions by adding the amount of water stated on the package. Set aside. Heat refried beans in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until hot. Stir in 1 cup of cheese and 1 cup of salsa. Stir until combined.
Place crushed corn chips onto the bottom of an 8×8” casserole dish. Pour the bean mixture over the chips in the casserole dish. Add taco meat on top of the bean mixture. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top of the taco meat. Sprinkle green onions and black olives over the cheese.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees F until the cheese has melted and the casserole is heated through. Take out of the oven and sprinkle with chopped tomatoes.
