Friday Night Bites #1

We have decided to do a new thing this year where we will try a new recipe every week. This past Friday, Jan 6th was week 1. I made a Mexican Casserole that I had found online!!! It was a hit!!! I did some small modifications to the recipe and will probably do some if I make it again....

Here's the recipe that I got off the blog Sing for your Supper [you can find it at]:

My Mom’s Mexican 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. Enjoy!

The only change I made was the beans. Our Wal-Mart didn't have the ranch beans so I substituted chili beans instead since they are similar. Next time I will double the cheese and probably add corn.
