This is a family favorite weekend dish! Now that Spring is here and we are spending more time outside I like a recipe that is quick and delicious! Ground beef was on sale this week so I prepared enough for our meal tonight and then froze the beef, onion, taco seasoning, chilies and tomato combination for two meals in the future.
I didn’t really have a name for this dish so Casey just made one up!
Nacho Supreme Bake
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (or 1/2 c. frozen diced onion, thawed)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
1 (28 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes
1 pkg. (12-16 oz.) tortilla chips (yellow corn)
4 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet, cook ground beef and onion until meat is browned and onion is tender; drain.
Stir in taco seasoning, chilies (undrained) and tomatoes (undrained). Simmer (uncovered) for 15 minutes and liquid is reduced.
Place half the tortilla chips in a 9 in. x 13 in. baking dish. Layer half of the meat mixture and half of the Monterey Jack cheese evenly over the tortilla chips.
Layer the remainder of the chips and then meat mixture and cheese.
Bake (uncovered) at 350° F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Top with dollops of sour cream and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake (uncovered) for another 10 minutes.
Let rest 5-10 minutes, cut into 8 squares and serve with condiments of your choice (salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, etc).
