This is based on a recipe from the Allrecipes website submitted by AndreaLF63, which I made a few minor changes to suit our taste preferences such as adding a can of white corn and using canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh chopped tomatoes. But I look forward to making this again and trying some of the other changes that some of the reviewers suggested, like maybe adding some minced garlic or perhaps a diced jalapeno pepper or chopped bell pepper.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 cups salsa
- 1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can corn
- 1 1⁄2 cups tortilla chips, crushed
- 2 cups light sour cream
- 1 (3 7/8 ounce) cansliced black olives, drained
- 3⁄4 cup chopped green onion
- 1 cup diced tomato (you can use 15-oz can diced tomatoes if drained well)
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- 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 corn, and cook just until heated through.
- Spread crushed tortilla chips in bottom of prepared baking dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. Spread sour cream over the beef layer, and then sprinkle olives, green onion, and tomato over the sour cream layer.
- Bake in preheated 350° oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Top with cheddar cheese and return to oven to bake another 5 minutes or just until the cheese starts to melt.
This was so yummy and easy. I made a few changes to suit everyone's taste. I used a jar (basically a cup and a half) of Trader Joe's Tomatillo & Roasted Yellow Chili salsa. This had just the right amount of smokey, spicy flavor for my family. I used the chopped tomatoes, olives, and green onions as garnish instead of baking them into the casserole so that everyone could personalize their bowl. It came out perfect. I like this way better than regular chili. This is a keeper and so easy!
Made this for the Single Marines in my husband's shop for their Meal in the Barracks and I'm honestly jealous because it's so good and they get to eat it all. Haha. I saved a little for my small family of three to taste before sending the rest off to them. I'm sure it'll be a big hit over there.
This was easy to make and very good. Like the others did, I added the juice from the beans for some extra seasoning. I made a smaller batch and we really enjoyed this. Thanks, NWG for a nice keeper that we will make again. Congrats on you Football win!!
