This recipe came from Pat Pearson. She was a friend I made while DH was in graduate school.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can mushroom soup
- 1 (2 ounce) can black olives, sliced
- 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 cup taco sauce or 1 cup salsa
- 1 lb cheddar cheese, grated
- 12 corn tortillas, torn into small pcs
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Brown ground beef and onion in skillet.
- Put all the other ingredients into large mixing bowl and mix well.
- Add ground beef mixture.
- Put in covered casserole dish.
- Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.
This was a nice casserole. I served with a tossed green salad and called it a meal! If I make this again, I will use a spicier salsa (I used fire-roasted medium salsa) or I'll add additional peppers for some more heat. Following 1 reviewer's comments, I sprayed my baking dish with non-stick spray. I added some sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and a clove of minced garlic (I think my kitchen is single-handedly warding off all vampires from Western Nebraska - I use garlic in just about everything and LOVE it). I used sprouted corn tortillas in place of standard corn tortillas. Also, I used a mixture of Monterey Jack cheese & cheddar as I had both and needed to use both of them. Made for PRMR Tag Game, 1/12/09. Thanks!
This was great! Very filling too! I was wary of the recipe since it called for both cream of mushroom (we subbed cream of celery since DH hates mushrooms) and salsa. But the taste was a really nice spicy creaminess. Since it was complained that the tortillas were soggy I only baked this for 40 mins (since the beef is already cooked) and they were perfect! As usual I added more cheese than called for :)
This was a very good and easy casserole! I subbed a jalapeno for the onion (ok maybe not an equivalent sub but I don't care for onions and we love jalapenos), otherwise made just as directed. The salsa and jalapeno made a nice contrast to the slight sweetness of the corn tortillas. We really enjoyed this and I will make it again!
