Cinco de Mayo Casserole

"A simple, satisfying main dish that our family enjoys. You can use reduced-fat cheeses and sour cream, but don't use the fat-free choices. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, sliced black olives, more salsa, and warmed tortillas."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Transfer ground beef to a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil until onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Spoon onion mixture over ground beef.
  4. Mix tomatoes with green chile peppers, salsa, corn, sour cream, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, salt, and black pepper into ground beef mixture; top with remaining 2 cups Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and cheese is melted, about 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Made for dinner tonight and loved it! Hubby ate it as well. :) I added a can of Bush's Grillin' Beans: Black Bean Fiesta and left out the onions and garlic (didn't have any). A tad bit bland but did have flavor. Will make again! Served with warmed flour tortillas. Leftovers tomorrow will be Nacho style! Makes a lot (serves more than 6)!

Unfortunately this wasn't a hit in my family. It tasted like it should have been a topping for nachos and not a meal. :(

Very good but I added rice and taco sauce because of the other reviews that I had seen saying it wasn't casserole enough. Added 2 cups of slighty undercooked white rice and served it on warm tortillas it was a hit :)

I wasn't crazy about this but I am giving it 4 stars because the rest of the family liked it. I was expecting it to be firmer..............like a casserole that you can cut out of the pan but instead it had to be spooned out. I made it into burrito filling and put it in warmed flour tortillas.

We had this for dinner last night and my hunny loved it. We served it as is with cornbread on the side. It had a little heat but not over the top. We really enjoyed it the first time and he enjoyed it as left overs today. I made exactly as state except I added 11 oz of mexican corn instead of 7oz. mostly just because my store didn't carry the smaller cans.
