Mexican Casserole

All who know me, know I love mexican food. The verdict on this was 3 of us liked it, one did not care for it. When I asked my daughter why she didn't care for it, she said "I don't like ground meat." Ok, this does not taste like ground meat :)

Brown ground meat - I used two pounds of ground turkey. Mix in one packet of taco seasoning and one quarter cup water. I also added in 3 tablespoons of minced onion and one can of cut up baby corn. (I didn't have corn kernels in the house, so used the next best thing)



Line the bottom of a casserole dish with crushed tortilla chips. We used Trader Joes brand blue chips.


Pour the meat over the tortilla chips.


Cover with a layer of tortilla chips.


Cover with a layer of cheese and then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

While you can't see it in the photo, I did add a can of diced chilis to half of the casserole. One of my daughters really likes green chilis, the other daughter does not.

That seems pretty easy and a fun way to mix things up! We'll have to try that here.

Ooh, this looks really good. Yesterday I saw a recipe for a similar casserole except it had crescent roll dough in it--that just doesn't sound good to me! Not for a Mexican casserole, at least. I like your version much better. :)
