Our sweet son, Spencer, is home for the summer! Wow it feels good to have everybody back in the nest. He just loves this Mexican Casserole that I've been making for years. Thought I'd share it with you.
This was passed to me so many years ago that I'm not even sure who gave it to me. It's copied from a book and says Mrs. John Taylor (Sue). So Mrs. Taylor, where ever you are...Thanks!!
1 Tbsp. oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 28 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 4 oz. can diced green chilies
1 2 1/2 oz. can chopped black olives
15-16 oz. crunched up Nacho Doritos
1/2 lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 pt. sour cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until translucent. Brown the ground beef breaking it up as you go. Blend in tomatoes, taco seasoning, chilies, and olives and simmer about 10 minutes.
Grease 9x13" baking dish. Layer 1/2 of the chips over bottom of dish. Add all of meat mixture then mozzarella and sour cream. Top with remaining chips. Bake until heated through about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and continue baking until cheese melts. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Oops, that came out a little blurry. Take my word for it - this is delicious!
Made him smile! Not really, I had to beg him.
Thank you Gollum for hosting this most delicious event.
