Easy Mexican Casserole

1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups salsa
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, drained
3 cups tortilla chips, crushed
2 cups sour cream
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Stir in salsa, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in beans, and heat through.
3. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread crushed tortilla chips in dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. Spread sour cream over beef, and sprinkle olives, green onion, and tomato over the sour cream. Top with Cheddar cheese.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

If you like mexican food (like my Kevin does), this is a very tasty, flavorsome dish!

This sounds like the perfect dish to make for daddy and Caleb and I this winter. I am not crazy about Mexican food but this is something that I would like very much. Lovely presentation also.

Katie, I thought the same thing. I wanted to make it tonight. The only problem is that I just made a big crock pot full of beans that we are eating on. Candace, this looks like a fabulous recipe. It is similar to another recipe that I have, but you use soft corn tortillas in it and peppers.
