Southwestern Bake


A delicious southwestern recipe that includes black beans. I use mild salsa, but if you like it spicy, use hot salsa. This is one of my favorite recipes.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 (8.75 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream

  • 2 cups fresh salsa

  • 5 cups crushed plain tortilla chips

  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 large fresh tomato, finely chopped

  • 3 green onions, chopped (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the garlic and onion; drain.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the meat mixture, chili powder, black beans, corn, sour cream and salsa. Stir until well blended.

  4. Into a 9x13 inch baking dish, spoon enough of the beef mixture to cover the bottom. Arrange half of the crushed tortilla chips on top of the meat mixture and layer with 1 cup of Cheddar cheese. Spoon another layer of the meat mixture on top of the cheese layer, cover with remaining chips and layer with 1 cup of cheese. Spread final layer of meat mixture on top and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top. Top with diced tomato and green onions.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
