Taco Casserole

What a yummy and oh so easy dinner this was! I usually don't do casseroles in the summer because I don't want to heat the house up with the oven. But it only took 20 minutes and the results were fantastic. Plus I had everything to make it except the bag of chips.

Made this Taco Casserole for dinner tonight. So good and so easy! I forgot to take a picture so I got this one from Pinterest.

Easy Taco Casserole
1 pound lean ground beef
1 can Ranch Style beans
1 10-12 ounce bag tortilla chips, crushed 
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 package taco seasoning
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup water
sour cream and salsa for serving

  Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large skillet, brown meat and drain off fat. Stir in beans, tomatoes, onion, taco seasoning, soup and water. Simmer over medium-low heat until everything is well combined and heated through.

Grease a 9×13 casserole dish. Put down a layer of crushed tortilla chips, followed by a layer of the meat/bean mixture, then half of the cheddar cheese. Repeat layers. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Top with sour cream and salsa.
** I don't happen to like Ro-Tel brand tomatoes. I used a can of Western Family Brand  Petite Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies.***
