I have been making this for years and it has become a family favorite. Just the other day, my ex-husband called to ask for the recipe.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 (16 ounce) cans Mexican-style tomatoes (I sometimes use Rotel, depending on if there are little ones eating with us)
- 1 package taco seasoning mix
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 1 (4 ounce) cansliced black olives
- 2 bags plain tortilla chips, crushed
- 1 lb shredded mozzarella cheese (I sometimes use a mexican blend cheese)
- 4 cups sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven 350 degrees.
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.
- Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent.
- Add meat and cook until browned.
- Blend in tomatoes, taco seasoning, chilies and olives and simmer about 10 mins.
- Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
- Layer half of chips over bottom.
- Add all of meat mixture, then mozzarella, then sour cream.
- Top with remaining chips.
- Bake until heated through, about 30 mins.
- Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and continue baking until cheese melts.
- Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
This was very good. I was a little hesitant on putting 4 cups of sour cream on top so I settled for 2. I also only used 1 bag of chips...1/2 on the bottom and 1/2 on top. It turned out great!
I spiced this up a bit with fajita seasoning and added a can of fiesta nacho cheese soup. Very simple to make. We liked this a lot. Next time will double the meat.
This had a really good taste, but turned out a bit dry. I really thought that we might like it better made as nachos.
