What's For Dinner Mexican Layered Casserole Incredibly Easy Weeknight Meals

Dinner from my cookbook ( paid 99 cents for it ) that I bought at the thrift store was fantastic. Probably not real low in calories with the cheese and all but I will make again. Could make a salad to go with it but I did not do that tonight.

Cook book is Favorite Brand Name Incredibly Easy Weeknight Meals.

Tonight we made our first recipe.. Layered Mexican Casserole.

8 ounces of ground beef

1 (12 oz) can of whole kernal corn drained

1 (12 oz ) jar of chunky salsa

1 (2 1/4 oz) can sliced pitted ripe olives drained

1 cup cream style cottage cheese

1 ( 8 oz) carton of dairy sour cream

5 cups of Tortilla chips ( 7 to 8 ounces)

2 cups ( 8 ozs ) shredded Wisconsin Chedder Cheese divided

1/2 cup of chopped Tomato

Brown ground beef in large skillet ; drain.

Add corn and salsa; cook until thoroughly heated. Reserve 2 tablespoons of olives; stir remaining olives into beef mixture.

Combine cottage cheese and sour cream in bowl.

In 2 quart casserole, layer 2 cups chips, half of meat mixture, 3/4 cup of chedder cheese and half of cottage cheese mixture.

Repeat the layers

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.

Line edge of casserole with remaining 1 cup of chips; top with tomato, reserved 2 tablespoons of olives and remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.

Bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted and chips are hot.

Serve with more chips if desired.
I loved the taste and the texture. Next time will had add a salad. We have enough left over for another meal this week.
