This is such an easy recipe your kids might like to help you assemble the casserole before you toss it in to bake.
Start by taking your casserole dish and sprinkling crushed tortilla chips on the bottom to create a layer.
Next, in a pan cook your ground beef, and drain out the fat.
Add your taco seasoning, salsa, and chili beans, and mix well. Let it cook for just a minute.
Pour this over your tortilla chips, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Pull it out and top with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, olives, and sour cream!
