This is an excellent one-pan to one-dish meal that can serve a lot of people without too much effort. I recently had 6 people come over to my house after an event and they were hungry. I had a lot of snack items around, but I wanted to give them something more substantial. This was the perfect dish. Since it has layers of tortilla chips and cheese, baking it off turns it into a cross between tacos and enchiladas. I hope you try this one out!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 medium onion, small diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, small diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1 can (15 oz) can corn kernels
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 5 cups tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • any toppings you like (I used sour cream, olives, avocado, salsa)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Heat oil over high heat in a large pan. Add beef, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and a good dash of salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up the clumps often for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes, until onions and peppers are softened.
  3. Add the corn, beans, and salsa. Mis well. If it starts going a bit dry, keep adding water by the tablespoon until moistened. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Lightly grease a 9x9 in. or similar sized baking dish. Lay half the tortilla chips on the bottom.
  5. Spoon half the meat mixture on top of the chips.
  6. Sprinkle half the cheese on the meat.
  7. Repeat the layers again: chips, meat, and cheese.
  8. Bake uncovered until the cheese melts and edges of exposed tortilla chips are browned, about 20 minutes.
  9. Add your favourite toppings and serve with tortilla chips on the side.

I used to make a dish in the crock pot that was a taco casserole. You leave the tortillas flat and layer them with the taco mixture and cheeses in between the tortillas. I have lost the recipe and wonder if anyone has one that is similar.

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, cottage cheese and 1 cup of the shredded Mexican cheese. Scatter half of the tortilla chips over the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with the meat mixture, then the cottage cheese mixture.
Spread the remaining tortilla chips on top. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of shredded Mexican cheese. Top with fresh cilantro.

Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 5-10 until cheese melts. I don't know if this helps, but it might be what you're looking for. Good luck!
