Very Good! instead of putting chips in bottom of dish I just put them on plates and spooned the mixture over top! Saved chips from getting soggy. Will make often. kids age 2 and 6 loved it! thanks for sharing

Something new for "Taco Night". This is a great recipe that everyone (including a picky 7yr old) enjoyed. I did omit the olives, family preference, but topped with the fresh tomatoes, lettuce & sour cream. My only problem is this recipe does not give baking dish measurements and makes less than enough to feed 4 people more than a very small portion. I used a 9x13 dish and it was very thin using the quantity of ingredients in the recipe. If using these quantities, I recommend a square baking dish. I will make this again, doubling the ingredients.

This was very tasty but quite salty. I do not cook too much with canned or processed foods so I think this was alot compared to what I am used to. I woke up this morning and couldn't get my wedding ring off because I am so swollen.
I messed up and bought tortilla chips instead of corn chips so I decided to just put rice on the bottom instead of ending up with soggy tortilla chips. I also put some corn in between the bean and beef layers. I sprinkled some tortilla chips on the top to give it a little crunch since I didn't add them on the bottom.
I will make this again but will make some changes to reduce the amount of salt in it. I will try homemade taco seasoning so I can limit the salt I add and use canned beans so I can rinse them off and mash them myself. I may reduce the amount of cheese I add to reduce the salt even less.

This recipe was delicious and even my kids ate it. We left out the olives because Chris does not like them. We had plenty of leftovers.

OMGOSH this was awesome! I just made this tonight for dinner and it was delish. I had to make two changes and they were tortilla chips instead of corn because thats what i had on hand and mild green chilis instead of onions, my family doesnt care for onions. This is a keeper, thanks for posting :)

Very Good. I used tortilla chips as suggested below. Instead of using salsa I used Rotel tomatoes and mixed it in with the refried beans. My son does not like salsa. I used low fat low sodium beans to combat the saltiness that was mentioned in several previous post. I used cumin,garlic,chili powder, onion powder,and pepper to season the meat instead of the taco seasoning. I omitted the onions and the olives because my family will not eat them.

A lot of Taco casseroles end up being too over powering for me, but this one is perfect! It's a little heavy, but that's why I saved it for a rainy day! I would totally make this again. :)

Super yummy. Super easy. Totally worth the $9 dollars it cost to make. With certainly make it again. I think some of the issue with the soggy chips is the water that the taco seasoning says to add meat. I cut the water about in half and then drained the extra off before putting the meat on the chips. After baking for about 10 minutes to melt the cheese...chips were still crunchy. Absolutely loved it!

My family and I really liked this dish, even my picky daughter! While I was making this dish, I found out I didn't have a can of refried beans, so I used a can of black beans, it was still very good! Well make again.

Really good! No corn chips on hand but I did have tortillas that I cut into bite size pieces and browned up in canola oil. The recipe is a keeper and I will make again with the corn chips. Thanks!
