How To Make Taco Casserole
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 to 20 minutes.
Pull it out and top with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, olives, and sour cream!
I like to serve this with some homemade guacamole and tortilla chips. You could also add jalapenos, chopped onions, green peppers, and avocado slices.
