Potatoes Rancheros Casserole

Crunchy tortilla chips, taco-flavored cheese and seasoned ground beef bring the flavors of the Southwest to your table. Do-Ahead Tip: If you're really a planner, consider cooking up several pounds of beef ahead of time and freezing it in resealable plastic bags in 1/2-pound (1-cup) batches. Then you’ll have it on hand for yummy dishes like this! Serve With: If your family loves salsa, serve it with this Mexican-style casserole. Variation: Replace taco-seasoned cheese with pizza-seasoned cheese and use crushed crisp breadsticks instead of the tortilla chips.
