I was at my boyfriend's house one Sunday night and he had half a bag of tortilla chips, hamburger, black beans and cheese. After madly searching for something to make on 'Zaar, I was inspired to create my own taco casserole. Enjoy!
- 1 lb hamburger
- 1 package taco seasoning
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans
- 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese or 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 1 (14 ounce) bag tortilla chips
- Brown hamburger.
- Rinse hamburger and black beans.
- In a pan, combine hamburger, black beans, water, and taco seasoning.
- Simmer for ten minutes or until the water has mostly evaporated.
- Crush enough tortilla chips to cover the bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish (I just crumble a couple handfuls).
- Pour 1/3 of the hamburger mixture over the chips in the casserole dish.
- Sprinkle with cheese.
- Continue to layer crushed chips, hamburger mixture and cheese in that order until all of the hamburger mixture has been used up.
- Add one more layer of crushed chips and cheese.
- Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.
Followed your lead and made this for Sunday night dinner. Goes together very quickly and very tasty. I did add an 8 oz can of tomato sauce, a little salsa, some chopped onions and hatch chiles, and a little chopped cilantro. Baked covered for 15 minutes, then removed the cover for an addtional 15-20 minutes, however the corn chips did get a little soggy, so next time think I'll turn up the oven to 375 for 15 minutes (until cheese melts). Thanks for sharing!
This sounds awesome I can't wait to try it!
