This casserole is filled with delicious crushed tortilla chips, plus seasoned ground beef simmered in cumin, chilies and a hearty tomato sauce. Each layer oozes with melted Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican - Traditional Cut and a sour cream-infused beef mixture that you’ve handcrafted yourself!

  1. Cook beef and onion in large skillet over medium heat 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, stirring frequently; pour off drippings. Add tomato sauce, chilies, cumin and salt; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Coat medium casserole dish with cooking spray. Layer half of the tortilla chips, 3/4 cup cheese and half of the beef mixture in dish. Repeat layering with remaining chips, 3/4 cup cheese and beef mixture.
  3. Cover dish with foil; bake in preheated 350°F oven 20 minutes. Uncover; spread sour cream over beef mixture and top with remaining cheese. Return to oven; bake 10 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted.

This great recipe is simple, easy, forgiving, and lends itself well to substitution. I strongly suggest making it once a week and tweaking it to your liking. Our family has loved it every time and I've even made it for church friends (sickness, surgery, etc.). Bravo!!
