Cinco de Mayo Casserole

Rated as 4.3 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  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.

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