Tortilla Casserole


Corn Chips add a crunch to this family friendly casserole!  It's the easy way to whip up the flavor of enchiladas without all of the effort.







INGREDIENTS

1 pound lean ground beef (can also be precooked ground beef prepared ahead -see this tip)
1 small onion, chopped 
1 small green bell pepper, chopped 
2 tablespoons  Tortilla Soup Seasoning Blend  (recipe in the soups eCookbook Here)
2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce 
¼  cup water 
2 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese, divided 
2 cups corn chips, crushed, divided 
Optional:
 sour cream
salsa


DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef with onion and bell pepper until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.  (if using precooked ground beef, place the defrosted meat into the skillet and reheat while sauteing the onion and bell pepper in a little oil).
  3. When beef mixture is done, stir in seasoning, tomato sauce, and water, heat to simmer and then turn off heat. 
  4. Layer ½ meat sauce, 1 cup cheese and 1 cup crushed corn chips in prepared baking dish; repeat layer.
  5. Bake 35 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.
