Taco Casserole

Taco Casserole  

1 lb. ground chuck

1 onion, chopped fine

1 clove garlic, minced fine

1/2 green pepper, chopped

3 ribs celery, chopped

16 oz. can tomatoes

15 oz. can chili con carne

10 and 1/2 oz. pkg. Fritos corn chips (can use Nacho Cheese flavored ones, plain, or other)

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded  

 Brown the beef.  Add the next 6 ingredients (onion, garlic, pepper, celery, tomatoes and chili con carne) and heat through.  Line the bottom of a greased (Pan-sprayed) 2-quart casserole with 1/2 of the corn chips.  Pour meat mixture slowly over the corn chips.  Add Parmesan cheese and the rest of the corn chips. Top with Cheddar cheese and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and cheese melts. (Make sure dish is hot in the interior before removing from the oven).   This recipe tastes much like “tacos” and taco sauce can be placed on the table to use as a condiment. It is very filling and the recipe feeds a lot of people (a minimum of 4.) Good accompaniments would be a tossed salad and/or garlic bread.
