Easy Mexican Casserole

Sometimes, you just need a warm, gooey, comforting casserole.  And sometimes, you just crave Mexican food.  So, a Mexican Casserole definitely hits the spot when those times come!  The best thing about casseroles are that they feed alot of people, so when my In-Laws come to dinner, that's usually what I make.  That, and the fact that they are so dang easy to throw together.  You can't go wrong! 

What You'll Need:

1 pound lean ground beef

2 cups salsa

1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, drained

3 cups tortilla chips, crushed

2 cups sour cream

1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

What You'll Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Stir in salsa, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in beans, and heat through.

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread crushed tortilla chips in dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. Spread sour cream over beef, and sprinkle olives, green onion, and tomato over the sour cream. Top with Cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
