Nacho Casserole

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! 

This dish is easy to make and very flavorful. The perfect busy weeknight meal. Enjoy!

Nacho Casserole

1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1 jar salsa (16 oz.), divided
3/4 cup water
1 can (4 oz.) Diced Green Chiles
1 packet low sodium taco seasoning mix
4 cups slightly crushed nacho chips (don't measure, just estimate)
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheese: cheddar or cojack
Sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 11x7-inch baking dish.

Cook beef and onion in large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned. Drain and discard excess fat.

Stir in one-half the jar of salsa, water, chiles, and seasoning mix; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Layer half of the broken tortilla chips on bottom of prepared baking dish. Cover evenly with half of meat mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Serve with remaining salsa and sour cream.
