Thanks to some reviews I was able to make this delicious recipe while tweaking the ingredients for a somewhat healthier alternative. All thumbs up and second helpings all around the dinner table! For 8 servings I used 1 1/2 lbs ground chuck, 1 pkg of Lawry's taco seasoning mix, 16 oz jar of Newman's Own all natural chunky mild salsa, Trader Joe's 15oz can of cuban style black beans (drained), 15oz can of Kuner's southwestern corn n peppers (drained), 6oz sliced black olives (drained), 4 sliced green onions, 15 oz can of petite diced tomatoes (drained), 8oz nonfat plain yogurt mixed with 8oz reduced fat sour cream, 2 cups cheddar/monterey jack cheese. I used blue corn tortilla chips, did not crush them, and only enough to cover the bottom of the dish...4 cups would have been way to much even in the 11x15 pan I used. I browned and drained the meat and then added the taco mix, the salsa, drained beans, and drained corn and mixed well in the skillet. Then layered everything according to the original recipe but added a few handfuls of crushed up blue chips on top. note: I do have a couple of kids who asked for a little extra sour cream on the side. Also, if you like more kick use hot salsa or add some tabasco etc.. GREAT alternative to tacos!
