Day 148 - Taco Casserole

Taco Casserole

Ok, last day of casseroles!  I made a taco casserole last week...and, I gotta be honest.  It was meh, and nothing more.  Would actually make a better dip than a casserole, and would be better served for kids or teenagers who like basics.  It was good, I'd experiment with it again, but not the best thing I've ever made.  Still, I'll share the recipe just in case you have no idea what to cook for dinner tonight!

Taco Casserole

1/2 pound ground beef
1 cup shredded cheddar jack  cheese
1 16 oz can refried beans
1 16 oz can black beans, drained
1 14 oz can chopped tomatoes
2 8 oz cans green chilies
1  bag of tortilla chips
1 T chili powder
1 t cumin
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t onion salt

In a large skillet, brown beef, adding in spices as beef is cooked.  Stir in both cans of beans and cook until heated through.  In a 9x9 pan (mine was 8x11), crush enough chips to cover the bottom.  Spread half of bean mixture on top, and then spread 1 can of chilies over beans.  Repeat chip, bean, and chili layers.  Pour can of tomatoes over the top and sprinkle on cheddar cheese.  Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.  Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
