Taco Tuesday Casserole

Taco Tuesday Casserole

This is a great Mexican dish for our bigger family. Could be made ahead for potlucks too! This recipe I threw together with what I had on had one night that sounded good together! Could be done with chicken as alternative too. I served this with cooked spinach and put my portion of casserole over the spinach.

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until almost browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook and stir until beef is browned and onion is softened, about 5 minutes more. Mix water and taco seasoning into beef mixture; simmer until water evaporates, about 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Line the prepared baking dish with tortillas and top with 1/2 of the ground beef mixture. Spoon 1/2 of the corn over the beef layer and top with 1/3 of the Cheddar cheese. Crush tortilla chips over cheese layer. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients, ending with Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and olives.
  4. Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes.
