  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onion in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  • Stir chili beans, corn, salsa, olives, and taco seasoning into beef mixture and simmer until heated through and flavors blend, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Spread about 2/3 the crushed corn chips into a baking dish and top with the beef mixture. Sprinkle remaining chips over beef.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese blend and continue baking until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.

This dinner was just ok for us. It was quick to make especially since I had the taco meat already made ahead in the freezer. I used spicy chili-lime corn chips that added extra heat. I omitted the olives as we are not fans but kept everything the same. My chili beans and salsa were "hot" in flavor to give the dish a little extra punch. I served this with sour cream additional salsa and fresh jalapeño slices. Read More

Turned out really good! Only changed a few things. Didn't add the chips into the bake we waited and added after to have more crunchy chips. I didn't add olives. And we added a spoonful of sour cream to the side to dip in. Definitely a meal I'll be making again! Read More
