Mom’s Mexican Casserole

April 1 at 9:59 pm Leave a comment

Yup, that’s what it says in my cookbook… “Mom’s Mexican Casserole.” Because this dish is one my mother’s been making for as long as I can remember. It’s one of my comfort foods, and it’s SO easy to make!

This one’s good for a crowd or for lots and lots of leftovers (which is what we did this time around). It’s definitely not the healthiest thing around, but it’s so tasty! 🙂 Pair it with a salad and you’re set.

1.5 lbs ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can diced tomatoes w/ green chilies, drained
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
2/3 bag tortilla chips
8 oz shredded cheddar

Brown the ground beef. Mix up all ingredients except chips and cheese. Cover a 9×13 pan with half of the chips and spread with half of the mixture. Layer the remaining chips and mixture and top with cheese. Heat at 350° until hot (about 8 minutes).

The unhealthy kicker here is the beef and the cheese. Remember, though, you can do what we did and cut a lot of the fat by using ground turkey instead of ground beef and cheese made with lowfat milk. All the flavor with less fat!

It looks totally gross, but it tastes SOOOOO good!
