Absolutely delicious. This is how I prepared this recipe: I greased a 9X13 baking dish with Crisco. I used 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef instead of 1 lb. Since this is a layered recipe (you will be making two layers), the extra 1/2 lb. worked great. I added a can of Rotel tomatoes with chilies (undrained) into the cooked beef mixture and I used cream of chicken instead of mushroom. I made my own taco seasoning (recipe 25449 from this site is terrific). I always double the taco seasoning recipe even for just 1 lb. of ground beef but you can experiment and decide what is best for your family. I am convinced that when it comes to packaged taco seasonings, your recipe will only be as good as the brand of seasonings you choose because some of them are so strong (not heat) that the flavor is overpowering and that can be all you taste. This includes those layered taco dips too. I followed the recipe exactly regarding the remaining ingredients. I thought the ground beef mixture with the onions, seasoning and refried beans was too thick so I added some water to the skillet and stirred it around till it was the right consistency. Give this recipe a try, it is delicious. I served this with spanish rice, warm tortilla chips, sour cream etc... Enjoy!!
This casserole is great! It was easy to put together and used ingredients we had in the house. All four of us had second helpings, with leftovers for lunch. I did use low-fat versions of the refried beans, shredded cheese, soup, and sour cream to cut down on the fat, and next time I make it I will probably add a green pepper (chopped). Thanks for this recipe. It is definitely a keeper.
Dynamite! My office is having a casserole cooking contest this Tuesday. I think I know whose going to win. I took the low fat and low sodium Items and added the green chilies & olives, but went 1 step further and added some diced jalapenos, and about a 1/4 tsp cayanne pepper on one layer. Next time I may use 1 layer of tortillas but also use 1 layer of tortilla chips just for a change in texture. Great dish!
