Easy Taco Casserole


1 lb of ground beef - or- turkey (lean preferably)
1 packet of Taco Seasoning mix
2/3 cup of tomato sauce
1 can (11 or 12 oz.) corn kernels, drained (Mexican or fiesta-style preferred)
8 oz. (1 cup) sour cream or softened cream cheese
1 jar Green Chili Tomatillo Salsa
8 oz. (2 cups) Shredded Mexican-blend cheese
10 or 12 corn tortillas, cut or torn into bite-size pieces (may sub tortilla chips)

************************************************************


First....You'll want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F)

And then....coat a 9x11 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray


Brown meat in a large skillet over Medium-High heat for 6-8 minutes and then drain.


Stir in taco seasoning mix...


And tomato sauce...


Let the mixture simmer over Medium heat for 5-10 minutes.


Add the sour cream to the mixture...


Add Mexican or Fiesta corn...




Stir thoroughly and then remove from heat.


Spread half of the mixture over the bottom of prepared dish.


Break tortillas into bite-size pieces...I like to take 4-5 together and fold them in halves (3 x's) and it's just easier and faster that way.


Layer half of tortilla pieces over meat mixture...


Then add 1-cup of green chili salsa


Spread nicely over tortillas...


Then add 1-cup of cheese and layer over mixture.


You'll want to repeat this layering process with remaining ingredients to finish the casserole.

And then place in the oven for about 20-25 minutes to cook.
