As easy as making tacos, but with a cheesy twist. So simple, quick and tastes great!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix (from a 1.25-oz envelope)
- 1⁄3 cup French dressing (sweet-spicy)
- 10 3⁄4 ounces Fiesta nacho cheese soup (condensed can)
- 14 1⁄2 ounces Mexican-style tomatoes, undrained
- 15 ounces pinto beans (canned, drained and rinsed)
- 1 1⁄2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 4 cups tortilla chips (nacho flavored, coarsely crushed)
- 1 cup lettuce, shredded
- 3 1⁄4 ounces black olives (canned and drained) (optional)
- 2 green onions, diced
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix, dressing and soup. Spoon evenly into ungreased 8-inch square glass baking dish.

Great recipe and so easy to prepare! My DH had three helpings - which means if I could give it more stars I would! I followed the recipe exactly but next time I may add the nacho chips on the top during the last 10 minutes of baking just to warm up the chips. Thanks for sharing! I make this again and - I used black beans rather than the pinto beans.
We really enjoyed this. I made this exactly as written. I'm nor sure the French dressing is needed, since I couldn't detect any flavor from it. I think it would taste fine without it. I served this over lettuce and Doritos. The kids used Scoops tortilla chips to scoop up the casserole for a fun, kid-friendly meal. Thanx!
