Easy Mexican Casserole

18 Nov

One of my favorite blogs, Sing For Your Supper posted this recipe a couple of months ago. She says that the recipe is from her mom, so I was immediately interested in it. A while back, I made her mom’s no bake stuffed peppers and they were divine. They went into my special recipe folder of recipes I want to keep forever. I love Mexican food, so I was really looking forward to trying this recipe! Well, her mom didn’t let me down, this recipe was a winner too!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Source: Sing For Your Supper


1 pound ground beef
1 can Ranch Style beans
1 10-12 ounce bag tortilla chips, crushed
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes (I used the hot version)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 package taco seasoning
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup water
sour cream and salsa for serving

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large skillet, brown meat and drain off fat. Stir in the beans, Rotel, onion, taco seasoning, soup, & water. Simmer over medium-low heat until everything is combined and heated through. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. Put a layer of crushed tortilla chips in pan, followed by a layer of the meat & bean mixture, then half of the cheddar cheese. Repeat layers. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with sour cream and salsa.

      I had never used them before either. I found them next to all the other canned beans at the grocery store. They were labeled ranch style beans.

    I made this for supper tonight and it was very good! I didn’t have enough tortilla chips so I added some cheddar and sour cream chips and it was good! I would have liked the beans but my husband and son may not have so I left them out. I’ll definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe!

    What size beans the small can or the large one?

    This was amazing! I didn’t have ranch beans, so used a can of Bush’s Grillen Black bean Fiesta.. used my homemade salsa for topper with the sour cream. Was very, very good. Will recommend to friends.
